LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) — The mother of a girl killed and boy injured in a shooting in Lafayette Saturday morning is speaking out.

Jowanna Christina tragically lost her daughter Kaci, 2, in the shooting. Christina expressed he sadness in a facebook post saying,

“Kaci will never get to experience a first day of school, a first boyfriend, elementary, middle or high school activities. I won’t get to walk my daughter down the aisle in her wedding dress or buy her first tampons. I’ll never get the mommy-daughter dates. I’ll never be able to give her womanly advice.”

A balloon release and candle vigil will take place tonight at 7 p.m. at Pa Davis Park, 120 Dawn St., Lafayette. The family ask that balloons be yellow and white colored and biodegradable.

Christina’s son, Kaisyn, who was also injured in the shooting had surgery on Monday.

A friend of the family has created a GoFundMe to help assist the family with funeral arrangements.
