A spokesperson for the family told local reporters that My’Kia was in the eighth grade. The spokesperson said My’Kia lived in Southeast Raleigh and did not reside at the apartment where she was found shot dead.

Raleigh police had one building of the apartment complex taped off with crime scene tape as officers canvassed the area, searching for anyone with information.
