A fight that started on Facebook has cost the life of a toddler in Detroit.
Amiracle Williams, 3, was shot and killed at her home on the 11000 block of Mogul Street on Detroit’s east side when people seeking out her sister attacked the home, according to police.
“It just seems like I can’t make it without her,” Williams’ mother Freida Tiggs told local FOX affiliate WJBK.
The toddler’s sister Chinetta Williams was reportedly threatened on Facebook, Instagram and phone by a former friend of hers. Afterwards, a group of men and women showed up at Williams’ home.
“They started jumping her,” Tiggs told WJBK. “I threw myself over her, and they started hitting me, kicking me…and I mean just no respect at all. And, they just started shooting. I tried to lay down and pretend like I was dead. It didn’t stop them. They kept shooting.”
Amiracle’s father tried to protect the women by firing a shot of his own gun, but a young man grabbed the gun from him and started shooting as he went inside of the house, according to WJBK.
Amiracle’s mother, father and her sister’s pregnant friend were shot as well and were rushed to St. John’s hospital.
“I just want justice for my sister,” Chinetta told WJBK as tears rolled down her face. “We can’t bring her back. We can’t bring her back.”
Donnie Everett, 24, has been charged with first-degree murder, felony murder, five counts of assault with intent to murder, felon in possession of a firearm and felony firearm possession.
Police said they expect more charges to come against others involved.
