Fiancee of California man killed while feeding homeless continues his mission

The fiancée of a Californian man who was killed while feeding the homeless will again be handing out meals to the hungry on Friday.
Robert Herron, 55, was providing food to the homeless in East Oakland on Aug. 20 when he was shot and killed by an unknown person in an unprovoked attack, police said.
"I never thought he would die on the street," said Herron's fiancée Lisa Chavez. "Never."

It was a weekly practice for the couple to collect clothing and food donations for the most needy in the community, KTVU reported.
This week marks the first time since Herron's death that Chavez will return to continue the tradition, she said.
She asked anyone interested in helping her and Herron's mission to bring food at 9:00 a.m.
Chavez was processing these donations when her fiance was shot, she said.
"I heard 'boom, boom, boom'," said Chavez. "Three to four shots. I turned and he's in the gutter."
A man who received a meal from the two remembered the moments immediately after the shooting.
"I was basically trying to keep him stable and alive until the paramedics and police were there," said the man identified as "Slim" Hoover.
Herron died on the scene, the police said.
His death is part of life in the area, suggested Hoover.
"People out here are being killed for free," said Hoover. "You can be killed if you blink the wrong way."
The man believed to have shot Herron, Jamal Taylor, was shot dead with police four days later in a gunfight in Chicago after escaping the Oakland area on Amtrak, authorities said.
Chavez said she still couldn't understand why her fiancé was killed, and she described their relationship as a "fairy tale that almost happened".
"Who comes up and shoots someone while they are being fed?" She said. "We should go to Disneyland. He was my goofy. We should go and get married."
The couple have been together for almost 14 years, Chavez said.
