Aaron Williams was found with a unique bullet. He died on the scene. The girls were rushed to a nearby hospital and both died of their injuries.
Sudden violence devastated those close to the family.
“The girls were so smart and full of energy,” Erica Osborn, a family friend, told Columbus Dispatch. “Whenever I knocked on the door to drop a meal or get one, they would come running. The first thing they tell you is they love you. I can’t believe they’re gone.”
The attack was not the first time Williams was violent. Dispatch obtained court records showing that he was charged with domestic violence with intent to harm and assault in September 2018. He admitted his guilt and received a three-day suspended sentence on charges of less erratic behavior.
Columbus police chief Thomas Quinlan said the case was difficult for officers who reacted to the scene.
“There is a person behind every badge – a mother, father, sister or brother,” Quinlan explained. “When we have a job to do – a job we signed up for – we get hurt too. We are suffering from these families. Our hearts are broken for their ruined mothers and everyone who loved them.”
A GoFundMe account was created to help Vanecia Shameer Kirkland, the girls’ mother, cover the funeral expenses.
