13-year-old Amaria Jones was killed over the weekend in Chicago while showing her mom a new dance move in their own home, per police.
A stray bullet from outside her apartment went through her television and struck her in the neck.
“She was showing me this dance called TikTok,” Amaria’s mother, Lawanda Jones, told CBS Chicago
“I turned around and I was looking for her and she was on the ground reaching out like this, holding her neck,” she continued. “I was like, ‘What?! What?! What?!'”
“The last thought that I have of my baby is her reaching out with blood gushing out her neck,” she continued.
On Saturday, an unknown gunman fired the shots that also hit two teenage boys outside Amaria’s apartment.
The boys were taken to a local hospital and were listed in good condition. Amaria was taken to Stroger Hospital of Cook County in critical condition and died about a half hour later.
“No one want to be a member of burying their child,” Jones said. “It’s supposed to be is — them burying us, not us burying them.” (Source: CBS Chicago)
