We don't know what the world is coming to but we know, some people in it, are going to hell.
Raymeon Means, 35, has been arrested after allegedly shooting and killing a 6-year-old girl over spilled water.
Laurionne Walker was shot multiple times at the apartment in the 3600 block of Shaver Street. Police said officers who arrived to the scene performed CPR until EMS rushed her to Bayshore Hospital, where she died.
Laurionne's mother told ABC13 on Friday that she was left in the care of a relative so she could attend the vigil for Porsha Branch and her three children, who all died in a crash in Spring Sunday night.
Laurionne's mother is the aunt of the three children who died in the crash.
'I'm at a loss for words right now,' Earline House, Laurionne's grandmother, said. 'My granddaughter was still a baby. She got shot twice in the chest this morning.'
A neighbor, Mauricio Alvarez, said Means knocked on the door to ask 'if you have water coming down because the little girl clogged the toilet,' according to Click2Houston.
He said Means left and he soon heard arguments from the apartment.
'[Later] he went running upstairs, and we heard like 4-5 shots, and he started running, and we started hearing screams,' Alvarez said.
Records show that Means is related to the renter of the apartment where Laurionne was shot. He is being charged with one count of capital murder.
The charge of capital murder is defined by the Texas Penal Code as an offense defined under the murder statute and in the commission of another crime, including the murder of someone ten years old or younger. If convicted, punishments range from life in prison to the death penalty.
This world is full of people who can't control their emotions and impulses and it's sad. There's no way this beautiful little girl should have died, or even been punished at all, over spilled WATER!
We hope Means gets punished to the fullest extent.
