  • More than 100 people gathered on the 1700 block of 132nd St. in South Everett, Washington, on Sunday night to mourn the death of Irah Sok, a Filipino photographer shot and killed inside her home on Aug. 19.
  • “We’re good people, why us?" Sok’s husband, Makara, said at the gathering. “I lost my wife, the love of my life. My best friend. My everything. My son doesn’t have a mom anymore.”
  • Sok, an award-winning photographer who owned the photography studio Irah Sok Images in Mill Creek, Washington, was in her home with her son and husband when three masked men forced their way inside and shot her to death, according to reports.
  • Her son was reportedly unharmed while her husband was injured during the incident.
  • The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the incident. No arrests have been made so far.
  • A GoFundMe has been set up to support Sok’s family.
