KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The family of a woman gunned down in the parking lot of Royals Stadium spoke to FOX 4's Robert Townsend on Thursday.

"It's been extremely tough for all of us, but we're remaining strong for her," says Glenda Bruce.

Nearly three weeks ago, Glenda Bruce's daughter, 41-year-old Renee Bruce, a parking attendant at Kauffman Stadium, was on the job when her relatives say Renee's boyfriend shot her. The gunshots rang out as Renee stood in the stadium parking lot.
Renee, shot once, collapsed.

The gunman then shot and killed himself.

Renee's family spoke only with FOX 4's Robert Townsend Thursday near Kauffman Stadium. During the interview, relatives thanked Renee's six co-workers, who ran to her aid after the mother of two got shot.

"I'm so thankful to all of them and the Royals for what they've done for her and her two children," says Glenda Bruce.

"That's a beautiful thing what they did to save my sister's life," says Maurice Bruce.

Renee isn't out of the woods just yet. She remains in the intensive care unit at an area hospital. Her family says they don't know why the gunman shot her.

"We may never know, but right now our focus is being there for her, praying for her and helping her pull through this," said Glenda Bruce.
