The 47-year-old had reportedly been traveling with husband Ryan, on their way to South Carolina for their seventh wedding anniversary, when they were caught up in a road rage incident.
The couple’s vehicle is said to have almost hit the suspected gunman’s vehicle, before the man reacted by rolling down his window and firing multiple shots. He then fled the scene.
Tragically, Julie was struck in the crossfire. She was rushed to UNC Southeastern, where she was pronounced dead from her injuries.
