Ukrainian teacher Tetyana Nikitina was shot in Salt Lake City, USA, on Saturday, 30th of January, near school as she was leaving work. T. Nikitina was a head-start teacher and was killed by her former mother-in-law, a 70-year-old woman who unloaded a revolver into the car Tetyana was driving, reloaded, then unloaded the gun again. The shooter then called police and reported the shooting. No children were at the school when the shooting occurred.
The motive for the killing remains unclear, and when asked for a reason for the shooting, the ex-mother-in-law simply said “I don’t know, and that’s all I’m going to say.” Nikitina divorced her ex-husband in 2005. Tetyana was originally from Ukraine.

He took custody of the parties children after the death of Tetyana.
