The other victim has been identified as Jennifer Markovsky, no other information about her is available at this time. Stewart’s sister, Temprest Llyod, told CBS affiliate KKTV that Stewart was outside Planned Parenthood making a phone call because he didn’t have service in the building. He was shot by the gunman, ran inside and was the person who told everyone to get down, get into rooms and called 911.”
