Once there, police told them Thomas had been shot at least once in her head. Family members say they can't imagine who would want to hurt Felisha since she keeps to herself, going to work and supporting her four kids.

And not only our life, but hers, because you know she's fighting. The family says as of Monday night Felisha Thomas is responsive, opening her eyes, able to nod her head yes and no.
Rice was playing with a toy gun; Loehmann shot him almost immediately after arriving on the scene. The two officers, Loehmann and year-old Frank Garmback, responded after receiving a police dispatch call regarding a black male that "keeps pulling a gun out of his pants and pointing it at people". Loehmann further claimed that instead of showing his hands, it appeared as if Rice was trying to draw: "I knew it was a gun and I knew it was coming out". Rice's gun was later found to be an airsoft replica that lacked the orange-tipped barrel, which would have indicated it was a nonlethal gun. A surveillance video of the incident was released by police four days after the shooting, on 26 November.
