“I woke up out my sleep to a phone call saying that my brother he got shot and is in the hospital,” said Jakara, “I go to the hospital, they tell me go sit down a doctor will come talk to me. I already knew. I broke down. I knew he was dead. I knew it.”

Jakara sat outside of the scene in tears as her friends and family tried to comfort her.

Kayne’s aunt Dianna Burel said his mother is at a loss for words

“My sister Darla, the mother, is losing her mind right now,” said Burel, “She never wanted to bury one of her kids first and I don’t know how we’re going to get her through this.”

Deshotel’s family as well as friends and neighbors want justice and hope that the violence will stop.

“Why are they killing,” asked Jakara, “This needs to stop, it really do. It’s too many.”
