In a shock­ing act of vio­lence, Orlan­do police arrest­ed 15-year-old Nico Brown for a dri­ve-by shoot­ing ram­page leav­ing two peo­ple dead. 

The reck­less car­nage struck on Tues­day evening, with rapid gun­fire pierc­ing a home and cut­ting short the life of an inno­cent 6‑year-old girl.

Ajahliyah Hashim was trag­i­cal­ly killed just two days after bul­lets tore through her fam­i­ly’s house, despite the efforts of doc­tors fight­ing to save her life. Trag­i­cal­ly, nei­ther she nor her moth­er were the intend­ed tar­gets of the hail of bul­lets. The young stu­dent had her whole life ahead of her before it was cut short in her own neighborhood.

Isaiyah Wright, only 19, also lost his life to the vio­lence after being dropped off at a local hos­pi­tal. It remains unclear what con­nec­tion, if any, he had to the shoot­ing. His dev­as­tat­ed moth­er is left griev­ing the sense­less loss of her son.

Yet Brown showed no remorse, flash­ing a jar­ring smile dur­ing his perp walk in hand­cuffs just days after the blood­shed. Now right­ful­ly fac­ing mur­der charges, the dead­ly actions that took two inno­cent lives at such a young age are a dis­turb­ing sign of increas­ing dan­ger plagu­ing local communities.

As lead­ers mourn the pre­ventable tragedy of a lit­tle girl’s death, the grass­roots call grows loud­er for an end to the epi­dem­ic of gun vio­lence threat­en­ing chil­dren across the city. Jus­tice must be served so no oth­er fam­i­ly faces the unimag­in­able pain of los­ing a child to reck­less violence.
