Mother, 26, shot dead in front of her two young children on Valentine’s Day

A mother of two was shot dead in front of her children after an argument with another woman on Valentine’s Day outside a Kroger in South Carolina.

Irmo Police said Christina Harrison, 23, shot and killed Alexandria Cress Borys, 26, in the crowded Saint Andrews Road car park just before 4pm on Tuesday and then fled the scene.

Officials did not specify why the women got into an argument, but said Harrison turned himself in.

Borys’ husband, Tyler, told WACH he was heartbroken at being left to raise his two children alone and described his wife as “a great mom,” noting that she was shot in the back.

Tyler said his wife, a stylist and nursing student, was shopping at the Krogers’ and their two-year-old and toddler were in the car when Harrison shot Borys.

He said Borys was the “best woman anyone could ask for,” adding that “she built a really strong support system” while in cosmetology school.

Borys has also been working as a babysitter since 2021, according to her Facebook page.

The grieving husband said the tragedy comes just a week after Borys’ brother died.

Tyler added that Harrison shot his wife when his back was turned after he finished the fight.

“From what I gathered, they either ended the argument or Alex walked away. It suggests she was shot with her back turned,” he told WIS News.

Irmo Police Chief Bobby Dale said in a statement that Borys and Harrison did not know each other prior to the shooting.

“Unfortunately, this is a situation where tempers flared and someone let the anger take over,” he said.

The grieving family have since created a GoFundMe page for a memorial in Bory’s name, which has raised more than $13,000 as of Saturday afternoon.

Harrison was charged with murder, unlawfully carrying a pistol, and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

The Lexington County Bond Court said in a statement that Harrison did not attend a hearing Wednesday and hired a private attorney.

The court and the Irmo Police Department did not immediately respond to Daily Mail.com’s request for comment.

The shooting rocked the small community of Irmo, and many say the Kroger was the town’s shopping mall.

“This mall is our shopping mall of choice, so this whole dynamic is a ripple effect throughout this community,” local resident Shawne Edwards told WACH.

Roommate Tabitha Foster added, “It makes me a little bit more aware because it’s a difficult time for anyone and everyone.”
