SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The brother of one of 12 people killed in a shooting rampage at a movie theater in Colorado says the family will have a memorial service for her in Texas.

The service for 24-year-old Jessica Ghawi will be Saturday at Community Bible Church in San Antonio. That’s according to an email sent Monday to The Associated Press by her brother, Jordan Ghawi.

Jessica Ghawi lived in San Antonio most of her life before moving to the Denver area to pursue a career in sports broadcasting. An avid social media user, she blogged about escaping a recent shooting in Toronto.

A former boss says Ghawi was an intern at a radio station in San Antonio before changing her name to Redfield because she thought it would be easier to pronounce.
