Prayers up for this family. According to 10TV, a mother of four is shot to death outside her apartment. The family says it’s retaliation for another crime.
The sound of bullets pierced the calm of the early morning. “The gunshots were loud, that’s why I immediately came out of the house,” said neighbor Mohamed Sow.
He saw Jerri Glenn slumped in the car and her two daughters distraught. “They were screaming and yelling for help, that’s when I called 911,” said Sow.
As police worked the scene, emotional family members gathered, shocked and heartbroken.
“It’s just not fair, they took a good person away from us,” said the victim’s cousin Robin Glenn.
The scene calmed and cleared but family trickled in and out all day. Glenn’s stepfather came back with key information.
“I know that gun is over there in that pond though,” said Albert Patterson.
Right after, the dive team rolled in. They suited up and made their way into the murky pond water. About an hour and a half into the search, a discovery, a bucket is hoisted up and a gun pulled out.
Family is trying to make sense of it all. “I raised her ever since she was 13,” said Patterson. “She just good, that’s it.”
Family says this has nothing to do with Glenn. They believe it’s retaliation for another crime. A shooting a month ago at Brice and Chatterton. Family says some people believe someone Glenn knew was somehow involved in that.
“Just catch the person, that’s it,” said Patterson.
10TV asked detectives about a possible link. They say they’re just not sure yet, it’s too early in the investigation.
