“I knew she was there, we have been up all night awaiting news. We knew she had been shot. This morning a friend with her confirmed she is gone,” Barnette’s cousin Janice Chambers told The Arizona Republic.
Chambers mentioned that Barnette’s mother has said that Carrie’s body hasn’t been recovered.
“She said there are bodies stacked everywhere. Not any real details as to more, other than she was up front close to stage,” said Chambers. She was shot to the left side of her chest and a friend with her was there at her side when she passed.”
Rhianna Brookshire honored her friend Carrie on her Facebook:
Ok friends, if anyone has heard frm Carrie or Amanda plz let us knw.
She hasn’t been active on messanger in 2hrs & hasn’t posted anything since earlier today. I’ve tried calling, txting, & fb calling them both. I’ve even attempt to message a girl named Jenn Gibson who they went to the festival with bt no one is responding.
I’m really wryd about my friends. I am praying they jst lost their phs while in a scramble to run from these crazy ppl who wanted to hurt whoever they could.
Plz let us knw if you hear frm them.
