Reality star Deshayla Harris was killed in a shooting in Virginia Beach on Friday, the Virginia Beach Police Department confirmed today. The Bad girls club alum was 29 years old.
Harris was one of two people killed in three separate shootings on the night of March 26. The other victim was 25-year-old Donovan Lynch. While these shootings appear to be unrelated, they all occurred in a similar time frame.
As a bystander at the scene of the second shooting, Harris unknowingly found herself in the crosshairs and was hit by a stray bullet, dying at the scene.

With the enhanced police presence and traffic flow mitigation continuing in the resort area where the shootings occurred, the investigation into the Virginia Beach deaths continues.
Harris, a native of Norfolk, Virginia, is best known for her 2017 appearance on the 17th season of Bad girls club. Produced by Bunim-Murray Productions, the reality series Oxygen Channel brought together groups of unruly women for a three-month stay at a mansion, examining their behavior among their new classmates and seeing if their bad behavior could be improved. .
Nicknamed the “Firecracker Fashionista,” Harris was remembered today by several of her co-stars on the show, including Keyaira “Key” Hamilton. “You didn’t deserve this man,” Hamilton said on Instagram. “Rest baby … take care of me.”
