The woman wounded in a domestic violence shooting last week in North Salmon Creek is paralyzed, according to an online fundraiser.
Her 6-month-old son was also shot and died at a hospital Friday, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office said.
The woman, identified in the GoFundMe as Aubree Young, called 911 at about 3:20 p.m. Wednesday to report her husband had shot her and their baby before shooting himself. The sheriff’s office identified the shooter Thursday as David E. Stansbury Jr., 42, of Vancouver. Stansbury was pronounced dead at the scene.
The GoFundMe, which had raised $68,000 as of Monday afternoon, states the donations will go toward medical, funeral and life expenses for Young and her family.
“On Dec. 7, Aubree and her 6-month-old son, Kymani, were the victims of a tragic act of domestic violence,” the fundraiser states. “Aubree survived but is facing a devastating new reality. Kymani’s injuries were not survivable. As she grieves the loss of her son, she’s also beginning to process her own prognosis, paraplegia — loss of leg function.”
Deputies responded to the 15000 block of Northwest Fourth Place, along with Clark County Fire District 6 and AMR. When they entered the residence, they found three people down on the floor from apparent gunshot wounds, the sheriff’s office said.
The sheriff’s office’s Major Crimes Unit is continuing to investigate.
