"Senseless violence for a person that didn't deserve it:" Vigil held for 26-year-old mother

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Milwaukee Police are investigating what led up to the shooting death of 26-year-old Amina Muhammad on Saturday evening, September 20th -- family and friends grieved together.

Another senseless killing, another young life -- family and friends mourn together trying to find strength at a moment when it seems impossible.

Loved ones stand in the spot where 26-year-old Amina Muhammad was shot and killed less than 24-hours earlier.

"She was just coming out of the house, coming down the stairs, a car did a drive by for whatever reason," said Tracey Dent, community organizer.

Muhammad leaves behind two young boys, who now have to grow up without a mother.

"It's heartbreaking, it really is," said Dent.

She is remembered as someone full of life, who always shared a laugh.

"She was just a fun-loving person. Senseless violence for a person that didn't deserve it," said Gail Morgan, a friend of Amina's.

An unnecessary end, hurting an entire community -- begging for the violence to stop.

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting -- the investigation is on-going.
