Kathryn Steinle and her father were walking on Pier 14 in San Francisco back on July 1 when three shots rang out. In front of her father Jim, 32 year old Kathryn collapsed and died two hours later from a gunshot wound that severed her aorta.

He had been deported 5 times and had drug charges pending at the time of the shooting.
