Candlelight vigil planned for woman killed in domestic violence shooting

Supporters of the woman killed in a domestic violence homicide on Tuesday have planned a candlelight vigil in her honor from 5 to 6 p.m. Sunday in Esther Short Park at Sixth and Esther streets in downtown Vancouver.

Organizers of the vigil and memorial have identified her as Tiffany Hill in a post on Facebook. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation.

“This will be an positive event to remember our forever sister Tiffany Hill,” the post said. “Please come with a candle to gather in silence, say a prayer, share a memory.”

As of Friday morning, about 100 people had indicated they would attend the event, with double that number expressing interest.

Deputies were called to the parking lot of the school, 2215 N.E. 104th St., at about 3:20 p.m. Tuesday and found two gunshot victims in the front seats of a minivan. There were four bullet holes in the windshield and the driver’s side window was smashed.

There were three children inside the vehicle at the time of the shooting. They were physically unhurt.

The suspect in the case, Keland Hill, 38, of Vancouver was out of jail on bail pending a court hearing in an ongoing domestic violence case and was the subject of an active restraining order. He shot himself in the head at Padden Parkway and Andresen Road after a brief police chase and was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

“This is a hard time for all of us. Our shining star was taken from us much to soon,” the vigil organizers said in their posting. “Please come show your support to her loved ones. Please leave your anger and bring a only your love, support, kindness and memories to share.”

A GoFundMe set up by Hill’s family has raised close to $65,000 to support her three children.
