Elizabethton, Tennessee (WJHL) — The mother of a 10-year-old girl who died after a drive-by shooting in Carter County on Tuesday says she doesn’t understand why someone shoots her house.
Lily Hanna Davis was lying on the couch when the bullet passed through the wall and hit her deadly on Blevins Road early Tuesday morning.
“I heard her husband yelling at her, so I rushed there and the baby was gone,” said Mary Davis, Lily Hannah’s mother. “I don’t want to wake up to my baby. All I can see is blood.”
“They killed an innocent baby. She didn’t deserve this. No one deserved this.”
The Carter County Sheriff’s Office offers a $ 3,000 bounty for information that could lead to the arrest of the case. Investigators have released photos of vehicles believed to have been involved in the shooting.
Sheriff Dexter Lanceford believes it’s not a random shooting, but Davis told news channel 11 An3 Daniel that he doesn’t know why someone is targeting her family.
“I couldn’t imagine why someone would shoot a trailer with kids or family,” she said. “She died while she was asleep. She didn’t do anything wrong. She didn’t do anything wrong.”
According to Davis, Lily Hannah was a good student at Central Elementary School and hated poor grades and absenteeism from school. She described her daughter as a mature child who loved to help around the house, play with her siblings, and was looking forward to growing up.
“She’s always wanted to be a teenager since she was six,” Davis said. “For some strange reason it was her. She wanted it, and it kills me I can’t see it. She can’t understand it.”
“Anyone who did this killed my baby. They killed my heart.”
Following the shooting, the Children’s Services Department relocated her other children, two brothers, Lily Hanna, according to Davis.
“They said our other kids weren’t safe with us because of what happened to our daughter, and they put them somewhere else.” She said.
As the investigation continues, Davis recommends that anyone with information about the shooting go forward and talk to the investigator.
“If I’ve asked them to let me know, let the police know … anything because I need justice for my baby,” she said.
The Carter County Sheriff’s Office requires anyone with information about the incident, especially the vehicle involved and its crew, to call the investigator at 423-542-1849.
