As RadarOnline.com readers know, Yetunde was shot in the back of the head while sitting inside her car with her fiancé, Rolland Wormley, at the steering wheel. They two were driving back from Compton to the mother-of-three’s luxurious Corona’s home when Robert opened fire.
Rolland told the Los Angeles Times that he had not even noticed Yetunde had been shot until he saw a bullet hole in the back window of the car and looked over to see puddles of blood next to his girlfriend. Panicked, he drove her to her mother, Oracene’s home, where they called 911. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital soon after.
While Rolland said the attack was unprovoked, investigators later discovered the two had driven by a suspected drug house. They argued that Robert and a second shooter had opened fire to get revenge on another gang.

“When Venus and Serena received the calls from all of us here, they were saying, ‘Are you sure this is correct?’ They couldn’t believe it,” a spokeswoman for the family told PEOPLE after Yetunde’s tragic death.
Robert was charged with voluntary manslaughter after being captured in 2006, and sentenced to 15 years in prison. He was released three years early for good behavior but was arrested again just last week for violating his parole.
Venus, 38, and Serena, 36, have spoken publicly about their late sister—who worked as a nurse and as their assistant—always saying she was a wonderful person and her killing was extremely unfair to the tight-knit family.
In 2016, the tennis pros even opened the Yetunde Price Resource Center in Compton to honor their late sister, Yetunde Price.
