Man pleads guilty in killing of 9-year-old Alexandrea Thompson
Azuriah Hoskins, who was 17 at the time of the shooting, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in juvenile court on Tuesday.
Detectives say they’re looking at the possibility she was targeted.
“We know her but we don’t know the reasons why, she would have never done anything to hurt anyone,” said Roberts.
It’s a brutal murder that’s left her family, especially her mother, shattered.
“She’s not coping, she sits there, she cries with everything Briana would have touched her hands on,” said Roberts.
William Clark is Paschal’s cousin.
“She was that spark that energized the entire family, just like a battery to a car, without it the whole family is numb,” he said.
The family is pleading for anyone with information to come forward.
“If you know something and are not saying anything about it then you’re complicit, you’re just as guilty as the person who pulled the trigger,” said Clark.
“See our hurt, feel our pain, Briana was a person that loved everyone,” said Roberts.
