“No one is getting over it. No one is moving on. The world has stopped turning as far as we know,” said family member Dominic Brown.
On Sunday, January 13, police responded to an early evening shooting on Ellis Avenue. They found Coleman, the mother of a two-year-old, had been shot and killed.
“There is nothing you can explain to me on why she deserved to die like this. The family is not doing well. It’s hard to function. It’s unexplainable. The family will never be the same again,” said Brown.
According to Jackson Police Chief James Davis, two of the suspects had assault rifles, and one suspect had a handgun. Davis said it appears Coleman was targeted by the suspects. Family members said the violence is an awakening.
“The violence in Jackson has got to stop, and it won’t stop unless we stop it. You wake up one day, and it’s your problem,” said Brown.
As of now, no one has been arrested in connection to this homicide.
