AKRON, Ohio (WJW) – Nicole Rollins was a mother of three and an active member of her community.

She was killed on February 17 at 8 p.m. outside a home in Akron.

Rollins was 43 years old.

A person who lived near the 800 block of Blvd. St. called 911 and said they heard 3 to 5 gunshots and saw a vehicle drive away from the scene.

The caller said Rollins’ headlights were still on and her car was still running.

The Summit County Medical Examiner said Rollins died of a gunshot wound to the chest.

“Nicole was actively involved with her children’s PTA and was a very important contributor to the Portage Lakes Girls Fastpitch League. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and sister who will be greatly missed,” her obituary reads.
