K’Mia Simmons Murder
K’Mia Simmons was a young Florida mother, who was shot to death while trying to shield her baby from gunfire this week. After she was gunned down this week, Linda Simmons said that the young mother dedicated her life to her two children.
The father of one of Simmons’ children, Praise Lovett, Jr., was driving the car when someone fired at them from another vehicle, local outlet WTVT reports.
Tyron Jackasal Arrested
Jackasal was already in jail for a robbery charge. He is now also facing a second-degree murder charge.
Detectives said the influx of tips and reward money is partly to thank for closure in this case, which has gained a lot of attention from the community.
The shooting happened at the intersection of 22nd Street South at 18th Avenue South last week. Police said Simmons was holding her 1-year-old child in her arms while her 2-year-old was in the backseat where a second bullet barely missed the toddler.
“The bullet went right through the booster seat, so it was probably the position of the baby, that’s the only reason why that baby is alive today,” Police Chief Anthony Holloway said.
Holloway said the gunman was actually targeting the driver of the vehicle, Parise Lovett Jr., who is the father of Simmons’ children.
