Kendrick was preparing to start a new job Monday as a nursing assistant, according to the Times.
"It's a very sad situation. On a Sunday morning, a woman just having breakfast on her porch and the house was full of children," police spokeswoman Yolanda Fernandez told WTVT. "No one else was injured, at least that's a good thing, but it's very, very sad for the family now."
“Because of a stupid, silly drive-by shooting, my daughter is dead,” Kendrick’s father, Paul Lucas, told the television station. “I have no other kids, but I've got five grandkids that I have to now find a way to take care of."
