A family member of a San Francisco woman killed in a shooting in the city's Oceanview neighborhood Wednesday afternoon has started a GoFundMe page to help her daughter relocate and cover funeral costs.
The woman, identified by the medical examiner as 65-year-old Lian Xiu Wu, a San Francisco resident, was killed in a shooting at the intersection of Broad Street and Plymouth Avenue around 10:40 a.m.
Two other victims, a 40-year-old man and a 51-year-old man, are expected to survive, according to police.
Wu emigrated from China 16 years ago to help take care of family members in the United States, according to the GoFundMe page created by nephew Denny Truong.
She came without her daughter and worked for 14 years to bring her over with her before she was finally successful, Truong said.
"She was like a second mom to all her nieces and nephews and cared selflessly for our grandfather," Truong said on the page. "She was caring, generous and a well-loved family member who will be greatly missed."
Truong said Wu was walking out to a bus stop when she was struck, and described her as an "innocent victim."
The GoFundMe account has raised more than $4,500 as of this afternoon.
Two other fatal shootings have taken place at the same intersection in the past six months. Josiah Lightfoot, 18, was shot and killed there on January 20th, and 22-year-old Keron Lamotte was killed on October 7th. —Sara Gaiser
