One of the 12 killed in the shootings at a Aurora, Colorado movie theater was Jessica Ghawi of Lansing.
It is confirmed on the Malesich and Shirey Funeral Home website she was born in Lansing in 1987, although she spent most of her life in Texas.
She was an aspiring sports journalist.
She narrowly escaped a rampage in Toronto last month when a gunman killed two people and wounded six others in a shopping mall.
Ghawi attended the screening of the movie with her friend, Brent Lowak, and had been tweeting about the movie minutes before it began.
Ghawi was a big fan of the social media giant, twitter. Her boyfriend and brother started a campaign on Friday to get her name trending with the hash tag #RipJessica.
