Cleveland bar raising money for funeral of woman killed in weekend shooting
Friends of the woman who was shot to death outside of a bar in Cleveland are coming together to support her family.
Miranda Stamper, 22, was killed after an altercation with Karla Clausell on Friday.
Clausell is in jail charged with first degree murder.
There's a special meaning behind every Michelob Ultra at CBC-Cleveland Monday night.
"I kind of feel like this gives her one last hoorah, in a way," Bartender Jordan Belcher said, "Mich Ultra was the only drink Miranda ever drank in here. So I was sitting down, I was really kind of being hard on myself, kind of what I didn't do in the moment? I felt like I didn't do enough."
Those at the bar are still in shock over what unfolded in the parking lot and trying to figure out how to help. This is why Belcher decided to donate $1.00 from the sale of every Michelob Ultra to Miranda's family.
They're also taking donations and Belcher said he will donate half of his tips earned Monday night to her family.
"I know that funerals are definitely expensive and no parent should ever have to bury their child. I hope this will show that we're here for her and support them," he added.
Miranda's death reaches across state lines in Georgia too.
Nija Guider said she met Miranda when they were 8 years old. The pair quickly became best friends.
"Whenever she didn't hear from me for a substantial amount of time, she would call me, she would check up on me. She would call my sister if she couldn't get a hold of me. She would call my mom just to check on my mom," she said.
Now, she's trying to find a way to support Miranda's family and keeping her best friend's memory alive forever.
"Miranda would be positive for me, so I'm going to be positive for her and honestly we can all remember her by being just like her by being a wonderful friend and never asking for anything in return," she added.
Funeral arrangements have not been set.
