A shock has caused in Florida, United States, the murder of the mother of a 10-year-old student committed in her home in Indiantown, at the beginning of the school year also affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The minor’s teacher witnessed through Zoom the crime scenes perpetrated by the woman’s ex-boyfriend.
The girl was preparing for her first day of virtual class due to COVID-19 through said digital platform, with the teacher on the other side, who had to turn off the volume so that the other students would not hear the discussion.
The teacher saw her student covering her ears when she heard the shots, then the transmission was cut off because a bullet shattered the computer screen.
Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said in a video on social media that a bullet hit the little girl’s screen.
The Martin County Sheriff’s Office reported that Donald J. Williams, 27, shot and killed his ex-girlfriend Maribel Rosado Morales, 32, on Tuesday.
