Authorities have identified the woman who was shot to death during a triple shooting in Keystone Heights on New Year's Eve as Liza Dukes.

Onnie Keathly, friend of Dukes, told First Coast News that he was her childhood friend. He said she was a dedicated mother of three and someone he kept in touch with several times a week.

"She just loved her family and was always there for her mom and dad,” friend Onnie Keathly said remembering Liza Dukes, “[She] always liked talking to people and if you had problems she'd be there."

Dukes was shot in the back and pronounced dead when authorities arrived to Lori Loop Road around 8:44 p.m., according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office. Keathly said her boyfriend, Shayne Wooten, and his father, James Wooten, were also shot and transported to the hospital.
