Family of fatal shooting victim in Prosser: she was a loving mother
PROSSER, Wash. — Relatives of the victim of the deadly shooting in Prosser told Action News the family is still in shock.
According to the Benton County Sheriff's Office, 35-year-old Amanda Hill died, after her friend, 36-year-old Amy Brown, allegedly shot her.
Hill's aunt Pamela Grant described her niece as sweet, outgoing, caring, very loving, and stubborn.
Grant said Hill grew up in Covington, in King County, and leaves behind a large, loving family, including a son.
She adds that she isn't sure how well Hill knew Brown, but doesn't think an alleged "best friend" would have turned a gun on her niece.
"We're trying to dig deep for some forgiveness but that's going to take a little bit more time. We are praying for the other girl's family. I can't imagine what her mom is going through, and we do know that she had sons. And I can't imagine how her sons are feeling right now," she said.
Grant said the family hopes someone with more information will contact the Benton County Sheriff's Office, because right now they have more questions than answers.
"One thing is for sure," she said, "Amanda will be missed."
