Investigators said there is evidence Kemp, 26, was with Dangerfield when she was killed. They have not said if Dangerfield’s gender played a role in the deadly shooting.
According to the nation's largest lesbian, gay, transgender and queer civil rights organization, at least 22 transgender people were killed in the United States in 2016, the most recorded by the Human Rights Campaign.
Dangerfield, 32, was added to the 2017 edition of that list. She is No. 16.
Dangerfield’s death occurred weeks after another transgender person was killed in Georgia. Ava Le’Ray Barrin, 17, was shot during a June 25 fight in the parking lot of an Athens apartment complex. Jalen Breon Brown was charged with murder in connection with Barrin’s death.
A woman was found shot to death inside her car.
