Horner had physically abused Sabrina for years during their relationship and had threatened to kill her on at least one occasion. Sabrina had recently told a friend that she wanted to purchase a gun because, "Horner had a gun and she would feel safer with one." On the night of May 29, she met with Horner, despite her friends advising her not to go. One friend convinced her to install a GPS location tracking app so they would know where she was.

Video surveillance showed Horner shoving Sabrina in the head and out of view under the overpass. Shortly afterward, he is the only one seen leaving the scene. The medical examiner revealed that prior to the shooting, Sabrina had suffered a skull fracture and a brain bleed. Horner has a history of intimate partner violence and was convicted of domestic assault of a different partner in 2017, and violating a harassment restraining order in 2018 that Sabrina had against him, for which he was incarcerated for a year. He also has at least five other domestic assault related charges. Sabrina Lee Schnoor leaves behind her young son.
