“She didn’t deserve this:" Loved ones mourning loss of 16-year-old killed in double shooting
“There are no words to describe what anyone is going through right now,” a family friend who wanted to remain anonymous said. “She was so kind-hearted, very smart.”
A sophomore at Bradford High School, Kaylie was an athlete and already taking some college classes. She leaves behind her parents and two brothers along with many other relatives and friends.
“She was just a beautiful young lady, a breath of fresh air, and beautiful inside and out,” the family friend said.
Kaylie’s life was cut short on Thursday when she was shot and killed in her home around 3 pm.
Police named her ex-boyfriend 15-year old Martice Fuller a person of interest.
“She didn’t deserve this,” the family friend said. “This boy definitely took advantage of her. They had been separated for months no contact, no nothing.”
Kaylie’s 39-year-old mother Stephanie, a business owner, was also shot and seriously injured. She has more surgeries ahead of her.
Police say Fuller took off after the shooting. He surrendered in Racine early Friday morning.
The Juga’s close family friends want justice and are asking the community for prayers.
“I just want everyone to know that they need to love their loved ones as much as possible, every day, and never take that for granted.”
A fundraising page has been set up for the Juga family.
Fuller is expected to be officially charged next week.
He could face charges of armed burglary, first-degree intentional homicide, and attempted first-degree intentional homicide.
