Walesha Williams and her 8-year-old daughter, Paris Williams, were found dead in a New Orleans home in the 14000 block of Duane Road early Tuesday morning. A 29-year-old friend was wounded in the shooting.
WWL-TV reports Paris Williams was supposed to start school on Tuesday after moving back from Texas a week ago to live with her mother.
The injured friend told investigators the gunman took off with a purse, cellphone and money. She was able to identify the suspect before she collapsed.
Neighbors and relatives say the man who pulled the trigger is Walesha Williams’ boyfriend. The NOPD has not confirmed that to be true.
