Jada Page's gravesite fitted with headstone in honor of 8-year-old killed in shooting
Loved ones call on community to come forward with information about killing
MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – An 8-year-old girl who was shot last year in front of her grandmother's home was remembered Friday by her loved ones as her gravesite was finally fitted with a headstone.
"I come out here and they put the headstone and I'm like, 'OK, this is it,'" Jada Page's mother, Domonique Brown, said.
It's been 10 months since Jada was killed in a drive-by shooting.
"It's just been like a rough, emotional roller coaster," Brown said.
The pain is still very real and very raw for Jada's mother as she visits her daughter's gravesite.
"I kind of feel like I'm reliving the funeral all over again," Brown said.
Jada was standing outside her grandmother's home in northwest Miami-Dade County last August when a car pulled up and someone started shooting.
Jada was fatally shot in the head and her father was injured in the shooting.
The shooter has never been found.
"I just beg the community to just be in our shoes for just one minute. If you know something, just say something," Jada's grandmother, Lisa Brown, said.
While family and friends know solving this case won't bring her back, they said it would help them move forward.
"They want justice. They still want justice," family friend Tangela Sears said.
Family members said it took so long to get the headstone because they got it customized with six photos of the little girl.
"She loved to dance, she loved to have fun, and everything that she did in life, it represents her on that headstone," Sears said.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
