White man runs red light, causes accident, shoots and kills black woman with her hands up

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/king-white-man-car-crash-shoots-kills-black-woman-article-1.2769936

Early Saturday morning, Deborah Pearl, a 53-year-old African-American mother and employee of a Cleveland area Harley Davidson Diner in Northeast Ohio, was on her to way work.

At 7:20 a.m., as she was driving her Ford Taurus, she had no idea that she was living her very last moments on this Earth. Matthew Ryan Desha, a 29-year-old white man, ran a red light at an intersection and hit Pearl's car with his Jeep....

As Deborah Pearl got out of her car to assess the situation, Matthew Desha did as well. Except he also grabbed his 5.56-millimeter high powered assault rifle. According to witnesses, Pearl then proceeded to put her hands in the air in attempt to save her life from the armed stranger who had narrowly avoided killing them both in the crash just seconds earlier.

It mattered not to Matthew Desha. A witness who called 911 reported hearing him fire off at least 12 shots. At first, they appeared to be random. The 911 caller heard Deborah Pearl, who was a sitting duck at that point, begin screaming. Desha then began aiming and firing at her. While it has not yet been released how many times she was hit, when police arrived at the scene, Deborah Pearl was found on the pavement mortally wounded and bleeding out.
