VANCOUVER, Wash. (KCPQ) -- A woman who was fatally shot by her estranged husband in an elementary school parking lot had been sitting in the minivan with her mother and her three young children, the woman’s family said in a post on a fundraising website.
Tiffany Hill was killed Tuesday outside Sarah J. Anderson Elementary School in Hazel Dell and police have said the shooter, Keland Hill, killed himself a short time later after a police chase.
Tiffany Hill’s sister, Tabitha Ojeda, said in a Go Fund Me post on Wednesday that Hill’s three children were in the car and witnessed the shooting but were not physically injured. Her mother was shot three times and has undergone multiple surgeries but is expected to survive.
Police have said Tiffany Hill had an active restraining order against Keland Hill, who had just posted bail when the shooting occurred.
The shooting happened after school had let out for the day and no one else was injured.
Court papers associated with the restraining order show an extensive history of abuse and violence, with Keland Hill repeatedly violating the restraining order, The Columbian newspaper has reported.
