'She didn't deserve this': Sibling of murdered Racine mother demands justice as police seek shooting suspect

NOW: ’She didn’t deserve this’: Sibling of murdered Racine mother demands justice as police seek shooting suspect

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Dozens of candles and bunches of balloons lay inside the roundabout on Spring and State in Racine -- a somber reminder of a life that was cut short early Saturday morning.

Racine police responded to reports of a woman lying in the street around 5 a.m. on April 15. 

When they arrived, they found a 36-year-old woman dead at the scene from an apparent gunshot wound. 

Family later identified the victim as Alexis 'Lexi' Fisher, a mother of five.

"She was a really good person. She didn't deserve to die," said her sibling, Britnee Fisher. "She loved really hard. Especially when it came to her family and her friends or relationships."

Fisher said she'll miss her sister's ability to bring the heat not only in the kitchen, but also in her music skills.

"I ain't gotta lie, she made the best food ever," Fisher said. "And she can actually rap, seems like the best rapper ever."

Police have not publicly said who they believe the shooter is, but family think it may have been a man she had been seeing.

"Guess who got to suffer now? Out of all of us, her kids got to suffer. He took her away from her kids," Fisher said. "Her parents loved her dearly much and her siblings and her kids and her main close friends."

Now, she's demanding answers from officials and seeking justice for her older sister.

"Everything about her was love and compassion," Fisher said. "I'm gonna say she's a northside legend."

A public prayer vigil will be held on Wednesday, April 19 at 6 p.m. by the roundabout. 

Any witnesses, or citizens with information, are urged to call the Racine Police Department Investigations Unit at (262) 635-7784.

Those who wish to remain anonymous may contact Crime Stoppers by phone at (262) 636-9330, or through the Crime Stoppers app by using the p3 app.
