Aisha Jefferson is seeking justice for both of her sisters, the victims of a violent crime.
According to Atlanta Police, Shadeeah Melton and Fatima Jefferson were shot multiple times during an argument on Fairburn Road in southwest Atlanta on May 22nd.
Shadeeah, 35, did not survive. Her sister, Fatima, was taken to the hospital in critical condition. She is on the road to recovery, but still remains hospitalized.
“Life is just so fragile. You don’t realize it until something is taken away from you, so close to you,” Aisha told in her interview with 11Alive.
Shadeeah and Aisha were just 18 months apart, and Aisha always looked up to her older sister.
“She was so intelligent and bright and giving, and just gifted,” she said. “I can’t be at peace until [the athorities] help me, until somebody finds them, and just makes this right.”
Atlanta Police say there is a suspect but, as of May 25th, no arrests had been made in connection to the shooting.
