Here is the thing. I woke up yesterday morning to posts about prayers for Mrs. Cindy. I didn't know her. I just knew she was the owner of Rumors and that location was less than three minutes from my house.

I was wondering what the heck happened yesterday morning. All I saw was that she was shot. Those reports were from my friends' Facebook pages. I didn't see anything official from the police here in Amarillo. I told my daughter that this was really strange. Oh and then the news came out that she passed.

Really this is so sad. A person lost her life working here in Amarillo. There were gunshots at Rumors. I still don't know the details but I am shook. Here is the announcement:

On March 7, 2021 at 1:26 AM, Amarillo Police Officers responded to shots fired outside of Rumors Bar at 1500 southwest 10th Avenue. Officers located a victim inside the front doors of the bar with a gunshot wound to the chest. The victim, 56-year-old Cindy Kay Jayroe, was transported to a local area hospital and later died of her injuries. Several shots were fired in the parking lot and the suspect fled the scene. The APD Homicide Unit is investigating the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the APD Homicide Unit at 378-9468 or Amarillo Crime Stoppers at 374-4400. Tips can also be given anonymously

Again this is right by my house. Less than 3 minutes away. This makes me crazy. I like to think that Amarillo is safe. Apparently it is not. I was happy to see an arrest was made.

I asked my daughter if she knew the guy....he was close to her age. She did not. They got their man. I know everyone is innocent until proven guilty.....but here we are. They arrested Trecoby Leon Campbell, 25, for the shooting death of Cindy Jayroe. I just hope the family can find some peace in the fast arrest. Thank you Amarillo Police Department on the fast arrest with the death that many are still reeling over.
