BROWNSVILLE - A mother of three was shot and killed outside Brookdale Hospital Medical Center early Tuesday morning.

Shalema Gaskin was visiting her 8-year-old daughter, who had suffered an asthma attack. The 32-year-old was shot in the neck outside the rear entrance. Gaskin was laying outside for about an hour before she was found.

It is unclear why and when Gaskin left the hospital. Family members tell News 12 Brooklyn they can't think of anyone who would have wanted to kill her.
