An 18-year-old woman died and her 16-year-old sister was wounded after they were hit by bullets while looking out of their Dallas apartment window.
Nequacia Jacobs and her younger sister, currently unidentified, were taken to the hospital immediately, according to CBS.
Jacobs died from her severe injuries while her sister remains in critical condition.
The two victims were inside their apartment on Highland Hills Drive when they heard a disturbance outside and looked out their window on the second floor.
Police have released photos of a suspect vehicle and described it as a white Dodge Charger with tinted windows and white rear spoiler. It is believed to be between a 2005 and 2010 model with stock black tires.
They also described the suspect in the shooting as a black male wearing a dark-color hoodie with a distinct logo on the back and writing on the left sleeve.
No arrests have been made yet.
A fellow resident said she heard a disturbance outside. ‘I heard the gunshots and I heard the kids screaming,’ Kimberly Brown said.
‘It’s heartbreaking. I could hardly get myself together last night because I was thinking about the kids.’
Neighbors and friends sent their condolences by adorning the girls’ apartment with notes, balloons and flowers.
‘This is going to affect everybody. We’re in total shock,’ said resident Rachel Lewis.
Lewis remembers the first time she met Jacobs when she interviewed the 18-year-old for a job at Wendy’s.
‘She didn’t have any work experience, but her smile… She was just willing to learn. I said, “I’m going to make sure you get hired.” She’s been there ever since,’ said Lewis.
Lewis also said Jacobs was her daughter’s classmate and friend. Jacobs was about to graduate from high school.
‘We will miss her a lot. I know a lot of people who still work at Wendy’s are devastated,’ said Lewis.
Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call police at 214.671.3701.
