Shontell Brown is currently mourning the loss of her daughter Gakirah Barnes, known to friends as K.I.
K.I was murdered Friday, April 11 after she was shot multiple times around 3:30 p.m. in the 6400 block of South Eberhart Avenue, Fox 32 reports. She was shot as many as nine times, suffering gunshot wounds to the chest, jaw and neck, according to NBC Chicago.
“It’s an ongoing war and we do not know what for,” Brown told NBC Chicago. “I’m just gonna miss her presence. She was a very, very beautiful, well-known, liked, lovely girl. I love her and I’m gonna fight for her to have justice because I don’t think it’s fair that we’re losing our kids being gunned down in the streets.”
