Three people have been charged in connection with the drive-by shooting of a 10-year-old girl in New Jersey.
Jasayde Holder was shot when she visited her grandmother’s house on the night of July 4, according to ABC 6. She later died of her injuries.
Holder had just finished fourth grade at Dane Barse School. Her mother described her as an “innocent girl” who was good in school and loved nature, ABC 6 reported.
Family members told ABC 6 said she was a creative girl who loved music and riding her bike.
Police have not released who was the intended target of the shooting.
In a press release from the Cumberland County Prosecutor, authorities announced charges against three suspects in the investigation. The three suspects were arrested on July 14.
Along with Holder’s murder, the three suspects are also charged for a shooting that happened earlier that same night in Vineland, New Jersey.
William L. Harris, 28, was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree aggravated manslaughter and other related offenses. Xavier L. Bogan, 20, was charged with first-degree conspiracy and related offenses.
Karonjah N. Witt, 28, was charged with first-degree conspiracy and related offenses.
According to an affidavit obtained by ABC 6, the suspect’s vehicle was identified through witness statements and video surveillance.
On July 14, Bogan, who owned the vehicle, allegedly provided a recorded statement implicating himself in the crime, as well as Harris and Witt, ABC 6 reported.
