Memorial fund for victim of shooting

A GoFundMe account has been established for the 26-year-old mother and wife who was shot and killed in a Kroger parking lot after an argument with a stranger on Valentine’s Day.

Alexandria Borys was shot in the back of the head by 23-year-old Christina Harrison. Harrison has been booked into the Lexington County Detention Center. Records show Harrison is charged with murder, unlawfully carrying a pistol and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. 

Irmo Officers responded to a shooting incident in the Kroger Shopping Center at 4:00 p.m. and located the victim in the parking lot.  A short time later, the victim was pronounced dead.  Officers began immediately interviewing witnesses and combing through surveillance footage.  From the information gathered at the scene, it appears that the suspect and the victim did not know each other, however, they were involved in a verbal altercation just prior to the shooting.  The suspect fled the scene in a white Ford.  While Investigators were still on the scene, the suspect called dispatch and said that she was at the Police Department to turn herself in.  Harrison was taken into custody at the Irmo Police Department and charged with Murder as well as other weapons-related offenses. 

“Unfortunately, this is a situation where tempers flared and someone let anger get the best of them.  One rash decision has impacted the lives of two families and countless others who witnessed this tragic event.” Chief Dale stated.  “Senseless is the only word I can think of to describe what happened today.”

“A beautiful woman, wonderful mother, compassionate wife, trusting friend, and so so much more. Alexandria was truly taken too soon,” states the GoFundMe Account page.
