COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

In just over three days, a fundraiser set up to help the family of a 23-year-old gunned down in a murder-suicide on Main Street has reached its $5,000 goal.

According to a post on the fundraising page, the goal was met relatively quickly thanks to Midlands residents. So far, $5230 has been raised for the family.

"And, just like that, in 2 days we've reached our goal! That doesn't, however, mean people cannot still donate. Please continue to share this fund, as all monies will definitely be welcomed and appreciated! Thank you to everyone who donated and shared," said the post.

Aja Robinson was one of the two victims in the Friday morning incident. Robinson, along with 25-year-old Jeremy Mickens, were found dead in a parking lot.

Columbia Police say Mickens shot Robinson and then turned the gun on himself.

There is no word on funeral arrangements for Robinson or Mickens.
