Jessica Doty Whitaker Indianapolis mother shot dead after telling BLM Supporters ‘All Lives Matter,’ following argument. No arrests.
Jessica Doty Whitaker, 24, was walking with her partner Jose Ramirez and two friends at 3am on July 5 when they came across four men and a woman, when an argument broke out.
The groups clashed over language and the Black Lives Matter movement, WTHR reported.
‘I’ll never probably ever get that image out of my head of what happened,’ Ramirez told WTHR.
According to Ramirez, the groups got into a racially charged argument, and one man pulled out a gun, in turn, so did Ramirez.

The Daily Wire cited Doty Whitaker’s father confirming his daughter had said ‘all lives matter’ to the group, who allegedly were supporters of the BLM movement.
Following the argument, the groups managed to talk things over and both parties walked away.
But minutes later, shots rang out along Canal Court.
‘I was actually holding her when it happened,’ Ramirez said. ‘She just fell. I turned around, and I opened fire too. But that’s just a reaction. I didn’t see nobody. Hopefully I didn’t hit nobody.’
He told Fox News: ‘It was squashed and they went up the hill and left we thought, but they were sitting on St. Claire waiting for us to come under the bridge and that’s when she got shot.’
Doty Whitaker, a home health nurse, was taken to hospital was taken to hospital where she died.
‘She shouldn’t have lost her life. She’s got a three-year-old son she loved dearly,’ Ramirez added.
