EDITOR’S NOTE: Report first published July 6, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A prayer service was held at San Francisco’s Embarcadero on Monday morning for 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle, the woman who was killed at Pier 14 last week in a random shooting.

Father Cameron Faller of the Restorative Justice Ministry held prayer for the victim as well as Francisco Sanchez, the man arrested for allegedly gunning her down.

Steinle, of San Francisco, was walking along the dock at Pier 14 around 6:30 p.m. with her father and a family friend. Her father had his arm around her the moment the gunman opened fire.

Sullivan turned to her father after she was shot and said she didn’t feel well before collapsing, said San Francisco police spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak.

Steinle was shot in the upper torso.

There was no communication between the suspect and the victim, according to SFPD Sgt. Michael Andraychak.

Sanchez has admitted in a jailhouse interview that he shot her, but he says the shooting was an accident.
