She was shot multiple times in her parent’s driveway while she was unloading groceries from the trunk, and the horrifying incident was witnessed by her 8-year-old son, who was outside the home in DeKalb County, Georgia, just outside Atlanta.
There is no mystery surrounding the identity of the shooter, as he is well-known to Raesha’s inner circle, and they are distressed by the lack of immediate action from law enforcement, reports Black Girl Tragic.
According to the victim’s friends, the alleged shooter has been taunting them on social media, which has only added to their distress. The police have identified a suspect but have not yet released the suspect’s name.
She leaves behind two boys, aged 12 and 8, and her parents and siblings will now be responsible for their well-being. The Heard family has been through significant loss and grief, as they tragically lost Romello Heard, 15, to gun violence last year.
The GoFundme set up in the victim’s name says this:
“Raesha Heard was murdered Wednesday October 11th in her parents driveway in Atlanta, Ga. She was a mother of 2 young boys ages 12 and 8 years old as well as a daughter, sister, loving aunt, and friend. She was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in the driveway of her parents house in front of her two children. Please help donate the funeral expenses, mental health expenses, and care of her two boys. Her parents and siblings will now be responsible for the care of her two children and are in need of financial assistance to do so.“
