(KETK) - Tyler Tx — New information continues to evolve as KETK looks into the death of a Gilmer woman last night. The woman was found dead in the parking lot of Gilmer High School.
Police were called to the Gilmer High School parking lot around 9:15 p.m. in response to a report of a dead body. After investigation, a woman was pronounced dead on scene.
She has been identified as 29-year-old Cheyenne Green. Police say she suffered from one apparent gunshot wound, but the official cause of death is still under investigation.
KETK spoke with a former classmate of Green who was shocked something like this would happen to someone so kind and soft-spoken.
"She was friends with, it seemed to be, everybody. so it's going to hurt a lot of people, and her family," said Cherri Hawkins.
The suspect, Jonathan Ray Shepherd, 33, is being held on murder charges and is said to be arraigned Friday.
