The second victim, 14-year-old Germany Holloway-Wilkerson was found down the street at a neighbor’s home suffering from a gunshot wound to the right thigh.

Witnesses told investigators they went with 22-year-old Curtellius Tenise Tapaingea James to a local restaurant, and when they got back, James’ belongings were in the yard, her vehicle had been keyed and all four tires were flat, police said.

The Holloway-Wilkerson sisters then arrived on the scene and started arguing with James, who allegedly shot the older sister in the chest with a shotgun and then fired at the teen as she was fleeing the scene, hitting her in the thigh, according to authorities.
