According to the police officials, the suspect, later identified as 25-year-old Lakiri, was taken into custody after she reportedly shot and killed 29-year-old woman, Laurielle, and left the victim’s 7-year-old daughter with her mother’s body for hours.
Officers, who responded to a shooting call, made contact with the 7-year-old child, who opened the door for them. The girl, who was not identified due to her age, told the officers that her mom was sleeping on the sofa.
The responding officers removed the blanket and realized that the woman was not sleeping, but was shot in the head and dead. During an interview with investigators, the little girl, who was not identified due to her age, reportedly said that Lakiri and a man were at the apartment when she went to sleep the night before.
