The family and community are demanding the woman be arrested and charged for the unjust killing of the mother of four
OCALA, Fla. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump, attorney Anthony D. Thomas, and the family of AJ Owens will hold a news conference on Monday, June 5 to demand that the unidentified shooter be arrested for this unjustified killing.
On Friday, June 2, Owens’ children were playing in a field next to an Ocala apartment complex when an unidentified 58-year-old white woman reportedly began yelling at them to get off her land and calling them racial slurs. The children left but accidentally left an iPad behind, which the woman took. When one of the children went to her residence to retrieve it, she threw it, hitting the boy and cracking the screen. After AJ’s children informed her of what happened, she walked across the street with her kids to speak with the woman. She knocked on the door, and at that point, the woman allegedly shot through the door, hitting AJ, who later died from her injuries. The woman responsible has not yet been identified, arrested, or charged with anything by law enforcement.
