Mareja Pratt died at the scene during a shooting over a family incident. Two other people were also sent to the hospital.
“A very sad time where a 16-year-old female lost her life unnecessarily over something that seems to be pretty trivial, over a social media beef,” Angelo said.
The two victims who survived, a 20-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man, were taken to the hospital. They are both expected to recover.
Kira Walton said the victim who died is her cousin, Mareja Pratt. She said Pratt was a 10th-grade student at Elsik High School.
“She was just focused. She had her whole life ahead of her,” Walton said. “Just started life and she just was happy about going to school and she was just focused.”
Walton said the social media beef had to do with a woman picking on her cousin on Instagram over the last few months and the situation came to ahead.
“They just came and started shooting. They killed my cousin,” Walton said. “She was innocent. She didn’t have nothing to do with it.”
Police said the shooter fired up to 15 shots and then took off with two other females. The vehicle was described as a four-door sedan, either red or maroon in color. Investigators have not released any other details about the shooter.
No arrests have been made, and police have not identified a suspect. Homicide investigators are following up on possible social media interactions among people involved in the shooting, police said.
