Woman dies after being shot inside her Gilbert apartment

A 19-year-old lady known as the police and stated she was shot by an “unknown person” inside her apartment close to San Tan Village Parkway and Ray Road.

GILBERT, Ariz. — Cheyenne Walters was scrolling by way of social media when she noticed the horrific story.

A 19-year-old lady known as 911 Saturday morning, saying she’d been shot by an intruder in her apartment close to San Tan Village Parkway and Ray Road.

“I saw the post but scrolled past it, it was a good day and I didn’t want to read about the bad news but something kept telling me to go back to that post, go back and see what that post says, I read through it and it said, Rachel Hansen, a 19-year old woman with a gunshot wound was found, I didn’t finish reading the post, I called her immediately, and it went straight to voicemail,” Walters stated.

Cheyenne’s coronary heart sank when she realized it was her pal, Rachel Hansen, who had been killed.  

Walters cannot consider anybody would purposefully hurt Hansen. She described Rachel as a sort, caring, and compassionate one that simply constructed relationships with everybody she met, particularly these within the horse neighborhood within the East Valley.

“I was like, oh my God it went straight to voicemail, I need to figure out what the rest of this says, I never thought it was going to say that she passed, she passed alone and scared, her mother was out of town, her mother had to get on a plane to fly back just to say goodbye to her daughter,” Walters defined.

Meanwhile, Gilbert police are nonetheless actively investigating precisely what occurred at Rachel’s house at Redstone Apartments.

“I have also been sent a screenshot of the apartment complex’s response to this unfortunate situation, they were just advising that people’s doors are locked, get to know your neighbors, and to take those extra security measures,” Walters stated.

Walters stated this capturing occurred simply days after Hansen’s prized mare, that is pregnant with twins, was allegedly stolen from her property in Queen Creek.

“She lit with so much joy, telling me about how much her family means to her and for this pregnancy to happen because it was her prized possession, she loved that mare more than anything in the world.”

While police have not confirmed whether or not or not the alleged horse theft is related, Walters believes this capturing was no accident.

“She was my client, she was my friend back in December when she was subleasing the apartment. She had just finished moving back into that apartment on Thursday, came and saw me first thing Friday morning and less than 24 hours later, it’s released that she had been shot and killed and had just barely moved back into and I don’t find that to be a coincidence at all. This never should’ve happened, her parents shouldn’t be having to bury their baby.”
