CLEVELAND (WJW)– Family and friends held a vigil Thursday evening for a 14-year-old girl who was shot and killed in Cleveland.
Abe’bre’anna M. Jackson was lying in bed at about midnight Monday when her home on Columbia Avenue near East 102nd Street was riddled with bullets.
Dozens gathered to release balloons and remember the teen at the gazebo across from the tennis courts at East 105th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. While there were many tears, it was also a celebration of Abe’bre’anna’s life with food, flowers and lots of hugs.
Following a prayer, family stepped up to the megaphone to talk about the beloved teen, echoing words of love and faith.
Abe’bre’anna was a student at Franklin D Roosevelt Academy and her family said she loved being a big sister.
