The family of a young woman seriously hurt in a shooting on South Union Avenue wants justice and is begging for anyone with information to come forward.

Alize Webber was celebrating her 21st birthday, and what should have been a fun night out with friends ended in tragedy.

Webber was shot multiple times inside her vehicle, leaving her seriously injured.

Her boyfriend, 21-year-old Michael Dupree, was also shot and later died.

Meanwhile, Alize's mother and sister have not left her side at Kern Medical since the shooting.

"I feel like she is going to push through it, because I can't imagine a life without my big sister there," explains Amori Lee.

The family says Webber and Dupree were at the Firehouse Restaurant in Bakersfield when an altercation concurred between a group of unknown people.

After Webber and Dupree left, the family tells me they believe the suspects may have not been too far behind.

"We believe they could have been followed, because she got ambushed," says Berry Accius, saying they don't believe this was a random shooting.

The family says Webber is a hard working and responsible young woman who has a large family support system. Her mother says she does not want her daughter to be judged by the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

The family is asking for someone to come forward with information helpful to finding the shooter.
