On June 29,2018 Phylicia Mitchell, 45, was shot to death Friday in Cleveland.

Mitchell, a transgender woman, was shot in the chest about 6 p.m. outside her home in the city’s Edgewater neighborhood, reports Cleveland newspaper The Plain Dealer. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

On June 24, 2018 the latest transgender victim to be murdered is currently identified. We are reporting the facts below out of respect and support toward our transgender community. We are devastated.

According to multiple news reports, a still-unidentified transgender woman was found dead in Jacksonville, Florida, on June 24 -- the third transgender woman murdered and the fourth shot in the Florida city this year.

Police are investigating the shooting death of the transgender woman in her twenties. Reports indicate that the shooting occurred at the Quality Inn in the Baymeadows area of the Southside.

Local activists are calling on police to aggressively investigate these horrifying attacks and bring the killers to justice. Antash’a English and Celine Walker, both Black transgender women, were also killed in Jacksonville this year.

"First and foremost, we join the Jacksonville transgender community in mourning the loss of a third transgender victim of fatal violence and demanding justice. Antash’a English, Celine Walker, and this latest unnamed victim were young women filled with hopes and dreams, and worthy of dignity and respect," said HRC National Press Secretary Sarah McBride.

On her Facebook page, Antash’a English, 38, described herself as an “independent” transgender woman who “thrives on being the best person” she can be. A friend of Celine Walker’s said that she would “always be inspired and encouraged by someone who had such courage to do what made her happy” and made a plea on Facebook for media and police to stop misgendering transgender victims.
