MIAMI (WSVN) - As family members mourn the loss of a little girl who was hit by a bullet during a drive-by shooting, one member is taking to social media to send a powerful message to the shooter.
Eight-year-old, Jada Page, was ambushed in front of her grandmother’s house in a drive-by shooting, Sunday, just before 5 p.m. Her father, James Page, was also shot in the process and continues to recover at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Thursday.
Jada was shot in the head while she was standing outside of the house with her father when the gunman opened fire near Northwest 25th Avenue and 101st Street, in Northwest Miami-Dade. The little girl was left brain dead and was placed on life support until she died Tuesday.
Her mother spoke hours after Jada passed away. “You can never imagine what it feels like, her birthday is next week,” said mother Rosalind Brown. “She was supposed to be 9 years old, Sept. 6.”
Now, loved ones are begging for answers and one man, who watched his young cousin die, has taken to social media. “This don’t make no sense, man. Y’all don’t know what you did to us, man,” said cousin Eugene Spence as he began to tear up. “Y’all ripped out heart our [expletive] heart out our chest, man. This [expletive] don’t make no sense. So share this post, post up, whatever you gotta do, if you wanna donate money to Crimestoppers.”
Police are now looking for a black Ford Fusion that they believe is the getaway car.
“We just want justice for Jada, man. We just want justice for Jada,” Spence said.
Family shared a video of Jada as she danced with her cousin during happier times.
Miami-Dade Police are now going door-to-door to handing out flyers as the search for the shooter continues.
On Wednesday, members of the community organized a peace march, demanding justice for Jada.
Spence said he is hoping his plea will push someone to come forward. “My daughter called me and say, ‘Daddy, what happened to Jada?’ I couldn’t even explain that to my child,” Spence said. “I held her hand. I talk to her. To see her sitting. Them lifeless, lifeless. Can’t do nothing for herself. The same girl that was dancing at my party on Wednesday. Dancing … come on, man. Come on, man. This [expletive] gotta stop, and this don’t make no sense.”
