A South Florida woman was shot and killed just hours after sharing her story of financial success on Facebook.
The Palm Beach Post reports Makeva Jenkins of Lake Worth was in her home at 2 a.m. Thursday morning when a masked man knocked on the door, walked in and fatally shot the married mother of three following an altercation.
The shooting suspect fled the home in the family car, which deputies found ditched nearby.
Jenkins' death came two hours after she posted to her Facebook page, detailing how she had turned her life around from homelessness to financial prosperity.
“I’m in awe of how far I’ve come,” the post read. “Fast forward to now: We overcame being homeless in 2013/2014 to reaching my six figure mark in 2015 to now making multi six figures. No matter what the road looked like, I followed my heart and stuck with it growing my business. I’m saying this to say, anyone can do it. It takes determination and consistency.”
According to the report, Jenkins, 33, was the manager of The Prime Enterprise Group, a business that creates business plans and marketing strategies for entrepreneurs and small businesses.
Jenkins had attended Barry University in Miami Shores, as well as the University of South Florida. Her children range in age from 1 to 7.
Thursday morning, someone posted to Jenkins' Facebook page that "the news reporters are true."
The Post adds Jenkins had a a seminar scheduled for July that would help people put together business plans to submit to lenders for money.
