There is reports that Smith killing was over some childish social media beef . one report said!!!!
Smith was about to graduate before she was gun down.This young lady should be picking out her dress for the prom. Not dead over some facebook beef for no reason!!! Ptleger said in a interview.
The St. Sabina pastor said he didn’t want those who loved Smith to retaliate.
Instead, he and community activist Andrew Holmes urged those who know the gunman to come forward.
“We want the perpetrators apprehended,” Holmes said. “This young lady had a life … She had a right to walk. She had a right to come home from school.”
“Grandmama was preparing to go to school to watch her walk across the stage in a cap and gown,” Holmes said. “Now she has to watch her being lowered into the ground.”
