A young mother was sitting in a car with her three children in Jacksonville on Sunday when someone opened fire, killing her and her 11-month-old son, a shooting survivor says.
Kadejah Williams, 22, and her 11-month-old son Tedashi Williams were killed in the shooting near the Cleveland Arms apartments.
Xacia Burnem, 18, was also killed.
Kadejah Williams' roommate told Action News Jax an argument broke out earlier in the day. She said the fight started again while she was in a car with Kadejah Williams and her three children, who are all under 5 years old. She said someone came up to the car with Burnem and opened fire.
Kadejah Williams' roommate and one other person suffered minor injuries from the shooting, according to Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry said he is very mad about the violence in Jacksonville. He and Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams held a press conference at 3:30 p.m. Monday asking anyone with information to come forward.
Williams said officers have gotten a lot of information from the community.
No suspect information has been provided.
Pamela Williams said Burnem was studying at SAL Tech Charter High School and wanted to become a doctor.
"She was just a good girl that loved to dress up, loved to have fun, be with her family and be around her nieces and nephews," Williams said.
Investigators think there could be more victims from the shooting.
Anyone who witnessed the shooting or anyone who was a victim is asked to contact the JSO Homicide Unit at 904-630-0500 or CrimeStoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
"I just want whoever knows what happened to come forward and tell what actually happened to my child and to the other victims that (were) killed also," Williams said.
"I just want the person who did it to come forward and turn themselves in. Give each family closure so we can get beyond this and just come together as one."
Williams said that son, 19-year-old Bilaal Shaw, was shot and killed in 2009.
"Just tell your kids you love them every day when they leave your house," Williams said. "You never know if you're going to ever see your child again."
