Vallen Conner was sitting in her vehicle and talking to a friend outside her friend’s home about 11 p.m. on that date when a light brown or tan SUV (possibly a Chevrolet Trail Blazer) parked on the street a few houses away. The vehicle then drove past the friend’s house when one or more individuals inside the SUV began firing guns.
Vallen Conner was shot in the shoulder; her friend was shot in the foot. Vallen died from her injury within 15 minutes. The friend was taken to Regional One’s trauma center where she was treated and released.
Investigators now believe three suspects occupied the SUV. Two fired shots. Detectives need someone to come forward about this murder.
