ST. Paul, Minn. -- The Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women is honoring Kelly Phillips and calling for an end to domestic violence.

The coalition and over 70 participating organizations, universities and individuals will raise the Live Free Without Violence flag for one week.

Phillips, 48, was shot Monday by another man after stepping out of their car at the Holiday gas station in Arden Hills. The shooter sped away.

Police say their only suspect is 44-year-old Lyle Marvin Hoffman, also known as Ty Hoffman, who KARE has confirmed is Phillips' ex-partner.

According to the Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women, in 2013, 45 percent of domestic violence homicides were committed with firearms.
