A 24-year-old transgender woman from Springdale was killed Thursday in Pennsylvania , according to the Pennsylvania State Police. Chyna Carrillo’s death is at least the seventh killing of a transgender person in the U.S. this year, though there are likely others that were unreported or misreported, according to the Human Rights Campaign. New Wilmington, Pa., officers arrived at a home along South New Castle Street to find Juan Carter Hernandez, 33, of Campbell, Ohio, beating Carrillo with a blunt instrument, according to a police report. The officers ordered Hernandez to stop, but he continued his assault. Officers then opened fire, killing Hernandez, according to the report. Police said Carrillo died from her injuries at a Youngstown hospital.
