$100,000 raised to help 2 Raleigh women injured by stray bullets in San Diego :: WRAL.com


— Two Raleigh women are in hospital Monday recovering from a shooting in California.

The victims, Toni Yrlas and Lane Sheer, work at the Preiss company in Raleigh, which manages student and multi-family housing.

They were attending a national conference in California, but ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time

The Preiss company said the two women had just left a National Apartment Association conference event, “Apartmentalize,” when two groups of people were arguing in the street.

At one point, someone in one of the groups raised a gun and fired shots. Sheer and Yrlas were hit.

According to San Diego police, one woman was shot in the chest, the other in the hand.

“Lane and Toni will need help with surgeries, transportation, rehabilitation and other medical expenses as they recover from this horrific incident,” reads the GoFundMe page created by a colleague.

But the support they received was also significant.

On Monday evening, more than $100,000 was donated, including $10,000 provided by Donna Preiss, the president of the Preiss company, and her husband.

The company released a statement Monday night that read, “The outpouring of support from those in our industry has been nothing short of tremendous.
