Two Missouri teenagers are under arrest in connection to the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old nursing student who was working her way through school.
The suspects, Jalin Jefferson, 17, and 18-year-old Corey Hardy, were each charged with first-degree murder, assault and armed criminal action, KSDK reported.
“I don't know what transpired other than it wasn't meant for her,” the victim’s father, Atif Mahr, said shortly after the slaying. “Whoever did this, they have to live with it, the same way I have to live with it. We will let God deal with it.”
Mahr noted his murdered daughter was caring and “would give and do whatever she could” for those she loved.
“You killed somebody good. You killed somebody that cared about people. You killed somebody that wanted to help people,” he said. “My daughter is not here because somebody didn’t have love for themselves, so they took somebody that was loved by a lot of people.”
A GoFundMe page has been created in Mahr's honor. It called her death part of "senseless violence" in the community.
"In lieu of flowers, the family is establishing a memorial to honor Isis' community volunteer work in the "Stop the Violence" movement, nursing career goals, and dedication to her family and community," the page read.
