POLICE are investigating a freak shooting in Alabama on June 24, 2022.
The 18-year-old son of local social media star, Ophelia Nichols, was murdered a day before his birthday.
Randon Lee was the son of Ophelia Nichols, a popular TikToker known by her account, shoelover99, which has over 7million followers.
Lee was murdered at a local gas station on Friday, 六月 24, just a day before his 19th birthday.
に Facebookの投稿, Nichols wrote, “My son was taken from us last night by the hands of another individual at just 18 年. He would be 19 today but Someone else made the decision to end my sons life.
“They are walking around in my town, living and breathing while my son is not. While me and my family are grieving a loss that no mother should ever have to feel, they are free.”
Arrests in relation to the shooting have yet to be made and the motive behind the murder remains unclear.
Nichols took to TikTok to release a video the day after her son’s death, pleading for help:
“I have never asked y’all for anything, but I need your help with this," 彼女は言いました. “He was just 18 年. That’s the best part of somebody’s life, and I know they’re out there in my town. They’re out there.”
“It’s hard because you’re putting all of your faith, hope and trust into these people and the police department,” 彼女は続けた.
“and you have to sit back and hope and pray that they do what needs to be done so that the person or people who did this to my baby child gets behind bars. You have no choice but to sit here and wait," 彼女は言いました.
