MILWAUKEE -- A 23-year-old woman was killed in a shooting that happened early Sunday morning, Jan. 27 near 62nd and Fond Du Lac.
Police said it happened around 2 a.m., during a physical altercation involving people in the area.
Loved ones identified the victim as Destiny McClendon. They gathered for a vigil Sunday night. They said McClendon left behind a young son, and they just celebrated his fourth birthday.
"They just had a lovely time, and she had a beautiful time, and she enjoyed herself -- and it was too good to be true," said Felicia Carter, McClendon's cousin.
Police are seeking suspects, and could not confirm whether or not the shooting was connected to the nearby Diamond Inn Motel.
