From the Daily World:
A 16-year old West Helena girl, who would have been an 11th grader this year at the KIPP School, became the city’s third homicide victim Monday night when she was shot numerous times.
According to police reports witnesses said a man came from behind the apartment complex and began firing a .40-caliber weapon numerous times. Multiple rounds struck the child.
The child’s death was the second homicide within a three-day period in Helena-West Helena. Saturday night, a 43-year-old Helena-West Helena man died from a stab wound.
Quanteria Smith, 16, was shot multiple times as she sat on the front porch at her home at 154 Marquette St., which is in Detonti Court. Also shot in the Monday night homicide was Eddie Henry, 23, who also was sitting on the porch at the residence of the girl’s mother, Elvira Smith. . . .
