Lili was shot in the face by two men on a motorcycle near Alfonso López Pumarejo airport.

She died instantly.

"My friends who were next to her say that two guys on a motorcycle approached them and shot her without saying anything. A few weeks ago we were attacked with stones, an attack that was aimed directly at transgender workers."

Lili was Venezuelan and had only arrived in Valledupar seven months earlier. She had became a sex worker after losing the job she had beforehand.

"We had a full day without eating, yesterday - Wednesday - she spent the day sleeping, and went to work at night. She was a fighter and smiling girl who lived her life."

She leaves behind a young child.
