“Even though I lost my daughter, in the physical, they’re losing their children too,” Brown said to the news station.
Other juveniles were inside the home during the Wednesday night shooting, Marbury said, but police have not said if these suspects were also in the residence. Police told Channel 2 there was a party inside the residence.
“I had just talked to her about boys being in my yard and having company,” Brown told Channel 2 as she swayed in a chair on her front step with tears in her eyes.

Police said the shooting appears to be accidental after doing interviews with witnesses. At the time, it was unclear if any charges would be filed.
The boys were taken to a youth detention center following their arrest, Marbury said, but other details about the shooting, including who fired the shot and owned the gun, were not released.
And while those are questions Brown has, she wishes her last conversation with her daughter went differently: “It really makes me sad that my last words were of a scolding mom.”
