To celebrate turning 27, Erianica Primer went out to a bar in Milwaukee on Wednesday night.

Inside, the mother of two boys ages 2 and 4 got into an argument with a few other women, says her mother, Evelyn Woods, reports Milwaukee TV station WDJT.

When she went outside, Primer was shot dead.

"I am just numb," Woods said. "It's just like a dream... She was very smart, intelligent, loved her boys. She was very energetic and loved by so many."

Police who responded to the fatal shooting around 1:30 a.m. Thursday said the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

In a GoFundMe appeal for donations to help the family, the victim's younger sister, Aiyanna Primer, wrote: "She leaves behind not just my father and her loving mother but two beautiful boys who needed her more than anything in the world."
