It apparently happened so quickly.”
Owens was a safety officer at the Riverview Gardens School District, which released a statement. “Officer Owens was a treasured member of the RGSD family, who worked diligently to build positive relationships with scholars and staff,” reads part of the statement posted to #Facebook
. Her family has created a #GoFundMe
page to help her three children which can be found on our FB page. 😢🙏🏾💜 #LinkInBio #wtf #Jesustakethewheel #prayers #stlouis #kelliebrewofficial
