MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Family is mourning the loss of a 28-year-old woman who was shot to death while sitting in her car Wednesday night in Milwaukee.

A vigil was held for Brandi Toombs near 77th and Medford, the same location where she was killed.

The family signed posters and lit candles in her memory.

"I'm going to miss her stopping by my house every day, checking on me. She stopped by and left notes when I wasn't even there," said Iris Weatherall, Brandi's cousin.

Weatherall says one thing she can take solace in is that the suspects were caught on surveillance video.

"It's one thing to have a death. A person taken by somebody, and not knowing who or why. And have no clue, and they forever run around here free. And you never get justice," said Weatherall. 

Toombs went to MATC and worked in carpentry in the area for years before going back to school.

Family members say she was always there for them and anybody who needed her.

"She would give you literally the shirt off her back. And so that's why it's so difficult for all of us to figure out what's really going on."

The family is still working out funeral arrangements. Irene Weatherall is organizing the funding. She says donations can be sent to her Cash App account.
