9-year-old girl fatally shot and killed in Ferguson

Jamyla Bolden was on Tuesday, August 18 fatally shot in her parent’s home in Ferguson, St.Louis.

According to her father, Jamyla was in bed doing homework inside a home in the 9200 block of Ellison when she was shot around 9:30 p.m along side her mother who was also shot in the leg.

Police believe the person who fired the bullets must have done so from a close range. The St.Louis County coroner said the girl died of gunshot wound. “I kept holding and holding her,” Jaymila’s grandmother, told the St Louis Post- Dispatch.

    “I still have her blood on my hands. She was still breathing. I was telling her to just breathe.”

No arrests have been made, but police said they have received several tips.
