A young radio journalist for a Kansas City public radio station died Sunday after suffering a gunshot wound in her apartment, apparently from a bullet that pierced a window, her station reported.
Aviva Okeson-Haberman, 24, was found in her first-floor apartment Friday afternoon, KCUR reported Sunday in announcing her death.
Okeson-Haberman was "an especially beloved friend and colleague just beginning what promised to be a brilliant career," KCUR, Kansas City's NPR station, said.
Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly were among those who expressed condolences.
Okeson-Haberman was looking to move to Lawrence, Kansas, which is about 40 miles from downtown Kansas City, according to the station.
She was transitioning into a new role covering social issues and criminal justice for the Kansas News Service, which is a reporting partnership. »
