The reports continue to reveal that when Tammy came home, her older son, Brandon Meyers, came outside to see the other driver’s vehicle come down the street. The driver then pulled out a gun and fired several shots, one hit Tammy in the head.

Tammy was immediately rushed to the hospital and was put on life support at University Medical Center of Southern Nevada until Saturday (February 14th) when she passed away. A family friend then launched a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe to raise funds for Tammy’s children, medical bills, etc. The project raised $6,000.

Now, the campaign’s organizer announced they were returning the funds after donors began to question why they kept key information about the deadly situation. ABC News reported that Las Vegas police revealed that Meyers and her armed son got in a car to look for the other driver.

Donors began to criticize the campaign, calling the family liars and demanding their money back. On Wednesday (February 18th), Tammy’s husband posted a message on Facebook, “At this time I have shut down the GoFundMe account that I didn’t start, a friend did. Everyone will get donations returned. I never said anything different than told. If all you people think I was a fraud and lied about facts, I’m truly sorry. I only ever said what was told to me.”
