The rising third grader was killed a little after 9:30 p.m. when as many as four armed civilians opened fire on her mother’s SUV in a parking lot off University Avenue, police said. The fatal shooting occurred across the street from the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed by an Atlanta police officer last month.
Secoriea Turner, 8, was killed July 4.
