She was taken to the hospital and placed in critical condition, but died shortly after 7 p.m

During a news conference on Monday, officials said police officers were in the area at the time of the shooting and ran towards the gunfire.

Police arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with the fatal shooting. He now faces murder charges, officials said.

They also found a ghost gun in the trash, which they believe he threw away right after the shooting.

On Monday night, Fletcher’s mother, Geraldine, held up a photo of her daughter while demanding justice for the murder.

“Locked up for life, I’d like to see that,” she said.

Fletcher remembers how beautiful her daughter was when she was born.

“When she was a baby, she didn’t look like a real baby, she looked like a doll,” she recalled. “She was a person who was always trying to help someone. She was a person about love and caring.”

During the press conference, officials said they believe Ghost Gun shots killed the woman.

Fletcher, a mother who leaves behind three boys, started working at the recreation center this summer and has been popular in the community.

Police are now looking for two or three other suspects in the firefight.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the police.
