A man and woman killed in a drive-by shooting in North Maardam, that also left four other people injured, have been identified. The woman, Niesha Cooper, was pronounced dead at the hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to the chest.

“I don’t know what I am going to do. I don’t even know where to go from here. This is sad… I hope that y’all find the killers. Anybody that knows something, I hope y’all don’t hesitate to talk. My sister was a 32-year-old woman with two kids and heart of gold,” said her sister, Tiesha.
