Virginia Beach, Va. - One mother is taking action on her own, making a plea on Facebook hoping to get answers in her daughter, India Kager's death. The 27-year old woman killed by Virginia Beach Police, caught in the crossfire during a shootout of an officer-involved shooting.

"Today, I have to record what I want the world to know," said Kager's mom, Gina Best in the video. "What a mother goes through when a child is stolen and executed for no reason."

The post has been viewed more than 1.2 million times in Facebook, spreading faster than the tears streaming down the mother's cheek.

"Oh God help me, I can't even tell you how bad this hurts," Best said.

Her daughter was killed back in September, shot by Virginia Beach police officers who were caught in a shootout with Angelo Perry.  A man who was sitting in the passenger's seat of Kager's car, whom police were watching and say was a person of interest in a murder case.

Virginia Beach police say Perry was armed with two guns, one of them a semi-automatic, and fired first.

34 rounds were exchanged, one of the bullets narrowly missing an officer, others hitting both Perry and Kager killing them both. Inside the car was their infant son - uninjured.

"They fired 30 rounds. 30 rounds! Who does that," Best asks. "How do you do that, when you know there is a woman in the car how do you do that?"

In the days after the shooting, Virginia Beach Police Chief Jim Cervera admitted Kager's death was an accident.

"It was accidental. It was not indented," Cervera said in a news conference. "But they were right on top of each other as he was firing his weapon."

There she's demanding answers. She wants the officer's names to be released and is hoping a special prosecutor in the case will be appointed.

According to Virginia Beach police spokesperson, the four officers involved in the shooting are all still on administrative leave and for safety purposes they will not be releasing the names - saying it's up to the Commonwealth's Attorney's office.

NewsChannel 3 reached out to a spokesperson with the Commonwealth's Attorney's office, Macie Allen,  who says their criminal investigation to see if the officers should be charged criminally isn't over, and because of that she can't comment.

Allen adds they are still waiting on state lab results to get an enhanced look at the surveillance video of that night. She also says once their criminal investigation is wrapped up, the names of the officers involved will most likely be released.

The Commonwealth's Attorney is also the one who decides if a special prosecutor should be brought in to review cases. In this case, one has not and will not be appointed if they decide to move forward with criminal charges.

"If we felt we had a conflict, we would be the agency to ask for a special prosecutor," Allen wrote to NewsChannel 3. "We do believe that we can conduct an independent review with no conflict."
