Burial of Ichinkhorloo will be held on Friday in Alameda

Today, I got an email from Grace M. Roberts, Honorary Consul of Mongolia in California.

She was an excellent student destined for a bright future, a girl who would bring joy and pride to any parent. Her memorial service was today and burial will be Friday. It was a tragic loss to all of us here in California.
A 15 years old Mongolian girl, B.Ichinkhorloo(Iko), was shot and killed on October 31 around 10:00 PM Halloween night not far from her house, a safe neighborhood park.
Iko, her older brother and cousin was ready to go home when 5-6 youth came to them trying to rob and shot guns in the air (3-4 times) to scare Iko, her brother and friends. Iko, her brother and friends thought that it was fake gun and she stood up from the bench where she was sitting. And gun man shot Iko as she stood up from the bench and killed her.

This is the first murder in city of Alameda this year and Alameda police are working very hard to find this killer. My office is in contact with Alameda Police constantly for status of their investigation. According to the police, they have very good information that could help find killer.
