This is terribly tragic. Kendra Childs was 19-years-old when she was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting inside her Houston, TX apartment Sept. 13. While the investigation is still on-going, Twitter users are outraged over the fact that they believe the victim’s boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend could be behind the murder. The internet is claiming she apparently plotted the killing online. See the angry tweets.
After the hashtag “ripkendra” caught the eye of Twitter users everywhere, people are outraged over the alleged story behind it. Kendra Childs was just 19-year-old when she was killed in a drive-by shooting Sept. 13, ABC 12 Eyewitness News reports. She was inside her Uvalde Ranch apartment on the South Lake Houston Pkwy in Houston, TX when a bullet struck her on the second floor. Investigators say the victim was alone while her boyfriend was at work, and when he arrived home, she was already dead. Kendra was the mother to a baby girl.
“Witnesses reported seeing a black newer model Camaro with standard rims and tinted windows drive by the house and fire multiple rounds.” Mark Holdbrook with the Houston Police Department homicide unit said. The news site says a man and a woman were inside that car, according to police, and her family members believe she was targeted. The rest of the internet seems to think the same too.
Social Media users have said the following user linglingbaby was the shooter and posted tweets plotting the event.
Stop romanticizing unhealthy behavior. It is not, has never been, & will never be admirable. This scenario is an example of why. #RIPKendra
