Although, she wasn’t the only one affected. Two other men (Donald Roberts Jr. 39 and Marvin Pepp, 56 ) were also pronounced dead at the scene.
Jamal Briscoe who is here father had said that “She’s supposed to be in school today, now what do I tell her school? Her friends? we were just going to be in New Orleans for the weekend.”
