A transgender woman who was shot to death in Oakland, Calif. late last week has become the 50th known victim of fatal violence against the trans, nonbinary and gender-nonconforming community in the U.S.

Nikai David was a 33-year-old model who dreamed of opening her own clothing line. She died in the early hours of Friday, according to the local Fox affiliate KTVU.

Police responded to a shooting in West Oakland just after 4 a.m., where they found a woman who had been shot in the head.

The woman was later identified as David, who lived in nearby Hayward and who had just celebrated her birthday a week before her death.

On Saturday, the Oakland LGBTQ Community Center shared in a Facebook post that David was “a beloved community member” and that “right now everyone at the Center is pretty shaken up.”
