Evelyn Rodriguez has passed away. Terrible news. RIP— Rep. Pete King (@RepPeteKing) September 14, 2018
Evelyn Rodriguez, 50, was hit following a confrontation with the driver of the SUV just before a candlelight memorial for her daughter who was murdered by MS-13 exactly two years prior. Reports say Rodriguez was transported to the hospital, where she died.
Her daughter, Kayla Cuevas was attacked and killed by MS-13 members in 2016. Since then, Rodriguez has been an advocate against gang violence. She attended Trump's State of the Union address and joined him at a forum about gang violence in Long Island.
