— High schoolers gathered Monday night in Madison, Ala., to honor the memory of a 16-year-old girl who was shot to death at a high school celebration last year.
The students marched on the Alabama high-school campus and were joined by her family members who stood on the steps of the school to mourn the life lost, said Jessica Sargent, a Madison High School student and a former Madison High student.
The 16-years-old was shot and killed after a fight with a friend on Nov. 27, 2016, at Madison High.
The 16-yr-old, who had previously been shot and injured at a bar in May, died a few days later.
Madison Police Chief Ron Hill said Tuesday that the shooting death was “just another example of senseless violence that happens every day.”
Madison Police Department Chief Ron Wood said that the teen’s friend, who was in the car, was cooperating with investigators.
