Mariam Folashade Adebayo, age 24, was fatally shot by her ex-boyfriend outside of a Target in Germantown, Maryland. Adebayo met her ex-boyfriend Donald Bricker, age 27, at the Target to talk, according to police.
According to WUSA9, Abedayo had agreed to meet after Bricker threatened to harm himself over their breakup. Though Adebayo ended their relationship after 6 months Bricker “wouldn’t take no for an answer,” Adebayo’s family said.
While they were in the car at Target, Adebayo and Bricker fought, and she eventually got away from him. But Bricker got out of the car and fired a shot at her, according to witnesses. She fell to the ground and he shot a second time.
Bricker fled the scene and was ultimately arrested after crashing his vehicle. He is being charged with first degree murder, police said. Bricker has a criminal history in Maryland and is on the state’s sex offender registry.
