This is the photo Tejeda tweeted:

According to the KENS-TV, Ghawi is originally from San Antonio. The station accessed a number of photos from her Facebook page, which appears to have been pulled down. Here are a handful of the shots. Adding to the shock of Ghawi's death is this bizarre coincidence: She was present at a Toronto mall shooting in early June at which one person was killed and seven wounded. Her final blog post is her moving description of that experience, including the following passage:

I was shown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystanders' faces. I saw the victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don't know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath.

Note: We've updated this post with confirmation that Ghawi was an intern for 104.3 The Fan, whose Facebook page features responses from listeners and staffers.
