The 14-year-old suspect charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Endia Martin is expressing remorse for her actions, the Chicago Sun Times reports.
“She’s so sorry,” the suspect’s mother told the Sun-Times. “It’s a shame that little girl had to die.”
Her daughter, she said, “feels bad too.”
The suspect is being held in Cook County juvenile detention. The dispute between the teen and Martin is alleged to have resulted from a Facebook dispute over a boy.
Two other suspects have been charged in Martin’s death.
The suspect’s cousin Donnell Flora, 25, is alleged to have provided the young girl the murder weapon, a .38 Special, according to ABC 7. He was reportedly charged Wednesday with first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm.
Flora, a paraplegic, reportedly took a bus in a wheelchair to the scene to deliver the gun. Flora handed the murder weapon to a 17-year-old boy after the shooting. The teen has also been charged.
The suspect’s mother told the Sun Times her daughter was pressured into firing the gun.
Martin’s murder was captured on cell phone video, Assistant State’s Attorney James Santini said, according to ABC 7.
The slain teen’s father described his daughter a “beautiful child” and “nice spirit,” according to Fox 32.
