KANSAS CITY, Kansas -- A 15-year-old girl died with her fingers crossed, hoping she would survive after being shot in a drive-by shooting Friday.
WDAF reports that Brannae Brown was sitting outside on a porch in Kansas City with her friends around 6:30 p.m. Friday when it happened. A silver Chevrolet Impala drove up to the home and opened fire. Brown was shot in the stomach, but tried to run away.
"The last time we said her name, she turned her head and looked at me and my sister and she had her fingers crossed like this, and that's when she took her last breath," said Tahsay Horton, who lived in the apartment that was targeted in the shooting.
Tahsay was across the street with her sister, Tanesha Horton, when the shooting happened.
Tahsay and Tanesha said it was the second time their apartment was shot up because of a dispute between some young boys under the age of 17.
Brannae was a sophomore in high school. Her mom said she wanted to be a dentist.
One person has been arrested in Brannae's death.
