Tragic: Texas Nurse is Killed by Celebratory Gunfire While Watching Fireworks in Her Driveway on New Year’s Eve – Please Pray for the Family

Texas woman was killed by celebratory gunfire while watching New Year’s Eve fireworks in her driveway.

Philippa Ashford, 61, was outside her home in Harris County just after midnight on Wednesday as her family and friends were shooting off fireworks when she suddenly clutched her body and said: ‘I think I’ve been shot.’

She then collapsed on the ground and died, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

‘At this point from our witnesses and seeing at the scene, we believe this may very well be a case of celebratory gunfire somewhere else in the neighborhood,’ Sgt Ben Beall told ABC13.

‘No indication a family member or anyone else in the cul-de-sac was discharging a firearm.’

Investigators are now canvassing the neighborhood for shell casings and interviewing residents to determine where the gunfire originated.

‘I don’t know you can even figure what the odds are,’ Beall said. ‘You’ve got the family together, celebrating the new year and now the matriarch of the family is deceased.’
