As Minneapolis police continue searching for suspects in Saturday’s fatal shooting, people who knew the two female victims are trying to come to terms with their deaths.

Eileen Mark, 67, and her daughter, Jennifer Angerhofer, 42, were found dead of gunshot wounds at Mark's apartment on the 300 block of 2nd Avenue Southeast around 10:30 p.m.

The residents of the apartment complex, Holmes Park Village, said they’re frightened by the double murder of their dear neighbor and her daughter.

Angerhofer had been visiting her mom at the time of the shooting. Neighbors heard the gunshots and called 911. Police say the suspect, or suspects, fled before they arrived.

“I just feel bad for everybody in there. I think they’re probably going to be scared in there,” said Molly Burt, who was a home healthcare nurse for one of the victims. “She was a real nice lady, and she talked a lot about her daughter and grandkids.”

Burt heard the news of her patient as she entered the building on Monday.

“I just was shocked to hear it was her. I didn’t know…it was just unbelievable it was this building," she said. 

As many are left asking questions, Burt remembers a woman excited to see her, often meeting her at the door.

“Even before she was my patient she would always get me at the door, and I had to wait until she was 65 to see her,” she said. “Before that she would always be at the door and say ‘oh, two more years, two more years I’ll be there and you’ll be able to come see me.’”
