Sheri Thielen, a 40 year-old single mom, was at home with her 9-year-old daughter the evening of February 9, 1999, when she heard a knock at her front door shortly before midnight. When she looked out her window, she saw two black men. The men walked around to the back of the house. As Thielen watched from the back window, the men turned and began firing shots into the home. She was shot three times in the torso. Thielen survived the initial attack, which police believe is a case of mistaken identity, but was paralyzed from the chest down. She spent three months recuperating in a local hospital, but died as a result of complications from her injuries on May 24, 1999.
