31-year-old Jennifer 'Jenna' Merritt of San Francisco passed yesterday. She was shot in the head two weeks ago while riding her bicycle in the Ingleside Heights neighborhood.
Merritt lived in a studio apartment in the Ingleside Heights neighborhood and was a caretaker for two elderly gentlemen who lived nearby. She did not have a driver's license and rode her bike everywhere. Family members said she may have been running an errand for one of those men when she was shot.
I've been following this story and was pulling for Jennifer; this is sad news. Ingleside Heights is a middle class neighborhood in San Francisco; random, violent crime is not an everyday occurrence in that area.
