Doctors didn’t realize she was shot until she arrived at Grady Memorial Hospital for surgery. Clayton County police haven’t identified a suspect in her shooting.

Her sister, Kayleigh Martin, told WSB on Wednesday that she had moved to Atlanta from California two months ago for more modeling opportunities.

Her family told the news station her funeral will be later this month in California.
