Bettie had left her office in the 6300 block of Ivy Lane that evening and was walking towards her car when a man armed with a handgun approached her. As she began running, he started shooting at her until a shot hit her.
The yet to be identified gunman then escaped in a getaway vehicle and has since been declared wanted
The police have also given details about him describing the gunman as “a black male with a thin build and black hair, wearing a dark shirt and pants.”

Chris Attoh and Bettie Jenifer tied the knot at a private event held at North Kaneshie, Accra, Ghana in October 2018.
Chris was formerly married to Nigerian actress Damilola Adegbite with whom he shares a son. The couple were divorced only 10 months before Chris walked down the aisle with Jenifer.
Chris Attoh got many tongues wagging last week, when he deleted all of Bettie’s pictures from his social media pages causing many to ask if the marriage is troubled.
Chris in an interview with Bellanaija back in 2017 spoke on his marriage to Dami saying;
“I believe throughout our marriage, It has probably been one of the most challenging things we have ever done, however, the key word is balance. At times when we both had to work, our parents would be there to hold the fort. God bless family because they were and still are very supportive.
“However, since the divorce, we are obviously now reworking things to create a new balance between work, spending time with and raising our son.
“Dami is a wonderful woman and an amazing mother. Despite our differences, she and I will always be friends. So more than anything we will find ways to continue to make sure that can still have a balanced upbringing filled with love and support. Both our families have been and are still very supportive in helping us take care of our son Brian when we can’t be there due to work.”
