“While attending, she met who she thought was the love of her life….” a family member posted online.
Doumba and Sheffield welcomed a baby boy in December. But within months, the new parents had problems so serious, Doumba got a restraining order to protect herself from Sheffield, according to police. On Sunday morning, Sheffield violated the court order.
Sheffield went to Doumba’s family home on Briar Crest Road, near Riverdale, shortly before 9 a.m., according to police. It’s not known what happened between the two before shots were fired.
“The preliminary investigation revealed that the male shot the female before turning the gun on himself,” Marbury said.
No one else was injured in the shooting. Doumba’s family is now caring for the baby.
A Go Fund Me page was created to assist the family.
“This has been a devastating blow not just for my family but mainly for her 8-month-old son,” a family member posted. “We as the family are in need of assistance for her final funeral arrangements which has caught all of us off guard. Her son is in need as well since he will need counseling for the traumatic event of now losing both parents.”
Funeral arrangements had not been announced late Tuesday.
