Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old Florida girl outside a Jacksonville convenience store on Saturday night.
The shooting followed an argument that started inside a WaWa store, and escalated in the parking lot, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office told news outlets.
The teen's family identified her as Teneria McClendon, First Coast News reported.
Family and friends gathered outside the WaWa on Sunday night for a memorial service. Family members told the television station that the teen and three of her cousins were in the car waiting for her mom who was inside paying.
According to the family, a woman pulled up in a car and almost hit their car. When the teen and her cousins told the woman she almost hit them, she jumped out of her car and started yelling at them.
Family members said the teen's mother, who is pregnant, came out of the store and told the woman to talk to her, not the teens. The woman then tried to fight the mother and her daughter stood up for her. That's when she was shot, the family told the station.
“She’s gone. My niece lost her child because somebody got a gun,” said McClendon's great-aunt Donna Ghent. “She was a good girl. She was in advanced classes at school. She didn’t bother anybody. She wanted to be a nurse. This is a senseless death. She was a baby.”
The sheriff's office said they're not looking for suspects. Everyone involved in the shooting has been detained, but they have yet to announce any arrests.
