9-year-old Brandoniya Bennett had just gotten her nails done and was simply sitting on her couch when she was struck by a bullet in the head by 19-year-old Tyrese Simmons. It was said that Simmons allegedly fired into the unit next door to where his intended target sought cover. Police administered CPR until paramedics arrived and took the child to Baylor University Medical Center, but they were in unable to save her.

On Thursday, Simmons turned himself in at Lew Sterrett Jail. He has been charged with capital murder, with bail set at $500,000. Meanwhile, the community has been trying their best to uplift and support the heartbroken family.

“She would have started school,” the major said. “She got her nails done yesterday.”

The girl’s family declined to speak to a few outlets, but activists spoke near the townhomes, saying her relatives were suffering. A GoFundMe campaign was created to raise money for the family.

“This family is filled with so many emotions,” said Dominique Alexander of Next Generation Action Network. “It’s hard for them to process what’s going on.”
