Keke was shot multiple times while sitting in a car.
Chicago's LGBT community and its allies are mourning the loss of a recent homicide victim who they say identified as a transgender woman.
Known to friends and family as Tiara Richmond or Keke Collier, the 24-year-old was shot and killed Tuesday about 6:15 a.m. while sitting in a car with a man in Englewood. The gunman fled from the 7300 block of South May Street in a red vehicle, police said.
An autopsy determined Richmond, of the 6800 block of South Normal Boulevard in Englewood, died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
"She loved to dance all the time," said [name redacted], 26, a good friend of Richmond who knew her for nearly a decade. "She was always the life of the party. Even when we got into fights, she didn't want to fight."
Richmond's family, which includes two sisters and a brother, accepted her for who she was, Wade said. Her family could not be reached Wednesday night.
