The ninth trans black woman has been killed this year in the US.

Chayviss ‘Chay’ Darice Reed was shot dead on Friday in Miami-Dade County, Florida, according to local news station WPLG.

Reed, a 28-year-old Florida native, was reportedly shot in the stomach several times while running across the street late at night.

The murderer fled the scene and is still on the run.

Her gender was initially reported incorrectly, due to false reports from the crime scene.

Reed’s murder follows those of eight other trans black women this year.
