The mother of two filmed being dragged out of her car and executed in the streets along with her boyfriend in Chicago after Juneteenth celebrations overlapped with Puerto Rican Day celebrations has died.

Police on Monday confirmed the reports that the brutal execution took place over a fender-bender and revealed that there were two separate executioners.

From The Chicago Sun-Times, "Mother of 2 dies after brazen Humboldt Park shooting that killed boyfriend: 'They spent years together, they made a family together' ":
Yasmin Perez and Gyovanni Arzuaga fell in love at first sight and were inseparable. They died together during a brazen weekend attack.

The parents of two young children, Perez and Arzuaga were gunned down Saturday night amid Puerto Rican Day festivities in Humboldt Park. Arzuaga, 24, died that night and Perez, 25, Tuesday morning.

Shortly after learning of her death, the couple's friend Jae Pacheco reflected on their love story.

"I thought it was so cute," Pacheco told the Sun-Times. "They first met each other at a party, and it was over with from there. They fell in love with each other, and they spent years together. They made a family together."

"It was love at first sight," she added.

The deadly attack has drawn national attention and has emerged as another flash point during a particularly violent year in Chicago. Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Monday vowed to track down those involved in the "horrific" shooting, captured on surveillance video that was circulated widely online and in the media.

Police have said the couple were driving in the 3200 block of West Division when they were involved in a minor crash and ambushed.

Several people beat Perez and then shot her, Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan said Monday. When Arzuaga came to her aid, he was shot by a second person "almost execution style," Deenihan added.
Note: at no point does the Sun-Times provide a description of the at-large murder suspects.

The shooters were simply "several people."

As the "fact checking" group Poynter demanded, the media must do everything in their power to not "amplif[y] narratives that connect Black and brown communities to crime."

This is the media's new standard.
