Danced with mom: in Chicago, a 13-year-old girl died from a stray bullet at home
Authorities said a 13-year-old girl, Maria Jones, who was dancing with her mother, got into the neck of a random bullet that got into the house from the street. Fox News.
“She showed me the TikTok dance,” said the mother of the deceased Lavender Jones in an interview. “I turned around and saw that my daughter was lying on the floor and holding her neck ... The last thing I remember about my child is how she reaches out to me and blood flows from her neck.”
Soon, the girl died in the hospital. According to the Chicago Sun Times, two boys, 15 and 16 years old, sitting on the porch outside, were also injured in the shooting.
Amanda Jones was among the 102 people injured in Chicago last weekend, and one of 14 dead as a result of firing on one of the deadliest weekends this year.
Police are still looking for a shooter.
The mother of the murdered woman attended the commemoration of her daughter and three-year-old boy, Mekhi James, who was shot dead on Saturday, June 20, when he was riding in the back seat of his stepfather’s car, just a few hours drive from Jones’s house.
Jones said she wanted justice for her daughter and urged the killer to surrender.
“They say that the police are killing, killing our citizens. They kill each other, ”said the mother through tears. “Our children are no longer safe.” Point. You cannot sit on the porch. You cannot even be in your own home. They will kill you. ”
She said she wholeheartedly mourned with other parents who had lost their children.
“Nobody knows what it is like to lose a child if you are not in this boat,” said Mary’s mother. “You can sympathize with us, but you will not feel our pain in full.”
Lavender's Jones nephew was reportedly shot dead a year ago, just three blocks from her daughter’s death site.
“She loved to talk and wanted to be heard,” said the heartbroken mother at last about her daughter. “She wanted you to see and hear her.”
