NOW: ’She made me who I am now:’ Mother of girl killed in hit-and-run speaks at vigil

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A vigil was held Sunday, Oct. 27 near 22nd and Center, where a 6-year-old girl was killed and her younger sister and cousin were critically injured in a hit-and-run.

Dozens gathered at the location where a memorial of balloons and candles had been set up to remember 6-year-old Alisa Gee. 

"I love my kids, Lisa is a great, great young lady. She made me who I am now," said Destiny Foster, Alisa Gee's mother. 

Foster said her four-year-old daughter, A'mea, is still fighting. 

"I’m going to get through this because I still got 'Mea that’s fighting, and my baby fighting," said Foster. 

Foster said she is scared to walk across the street after what happened to her children, and has a question for the driver who hit them and kept going.

"What was y’all doing? Did you not see these, it wasn’t just three kids, it was six kids. Y’all hit three, killed, y’all took one, got one fighting, got two fighting," said Foster.

The Milwaukee Police Department recovered a vehicle on Friday, Oct. 25, and have persons of interest in custody in relation to the fatal hit-and run. Police say evidence and witness statements from the scene give reason to believe the vehicle and individuals are linked to the incident. 

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family

A GoFundMe has also been set up to help the 10-year-old boy injured in the hit-and-run.
