El Paso Woman Among Victims of Plano Shooting

UPDATE:

News Channel Nine learned that one of the victims in the deadly shooting is a native El Pasoan. Friends of 28-year-old Myah Green-Bass have confirmed that she was one of the 8 victims in Sunday nights Plano shooting. They say she was a great co-worker, friend, wife and El Pasoan.

"We had a nickname for her it was mean miss green but you know that was mean in a good way," said Tracy Alexander, a friend and former co-worker.

A graduate of Americas High School and former employee at Capone's Barber Shop in East El Paso, Myah Green-Bass was one of eight victims killed during a Dallas Cowboys watch party on Sunday.

She worked at Capone's since it opened in 2014 and left a few months back to move to Dallas with her husband.

Friends tell me she was an energetic and fun-loving spirit.

"She was the first person to greet people when they came into the door, she worked first chair on the left, and loud she made sure you heard her so but she was a great person, you know friendship centered person, its hard to describe Myah in one word cause she was so much to all of us. I mean yesterday was pretty devastating I mean we are still dealing with it," said Alexander.

Myah's best friend and manager at Capone's Robert Miranda says she meant the world to the shop and the Capone's family.

Her former co-workers are now organizing a benefit in her honor.

"The barber industry we are kind of like a family we spend more time together than we do with our family so it would be nice for everyone to come out and show love and help us support her family," said Richard Orozco, a friend and former co-worker.

Myah's benefit will be held this Sunday, September 17, 2017  at The Legendary Tipsy Tiger located in East El Paso on 1590 George Dieter  at 2 p.m.

This is a family-friendly event and there will be free food and drinks for those in attendance. Donations will be taken at the event.
