BALTIMORE — A storm couldn’t wash away a mother’s anguish.

16-year-old Ala’Junaye Davis was shot and killed early Saturday morning in Southwest Baltimore.

Her mother, Brandi Thomas, wanted all the people who have been protesting for George Floyd against police brutality to show the same passion for a daughter of Baltimore lost to gun violence.

“My child’s life was very precious, just like everybody who lost their child, husband, loved one, brother, neighbor, teacher their life was precious,” Thomas said.

Her friends and family say she was always dancing and smiling.

“She spent summers with me each day and night. She say she loved me everyday that’s all I gotta say,” Her friend Tyleah said.

Her step father Rodney Davis said he's sick of seeing young people killed by young people.

“Only thing they wanna do is pick up a gun and start shooting. It’s not always about a gun, it’s not.”

There have been no arrests in this case. Metro Crime Stoppers is offering a $4,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.
