You can see one of the bullet holes in a van and there is also one in the garage, the dining room window and even one that went through a bedroom window where Nesha Washington was shot and killed.

“She hadn't even started her life, it's unfair,” said Lynn, who identifies herself as a close family friend. “We'd love to have her back, but that's not possible.”

Friends and family of Nesha Washington are still trying to come to terms with what happened.

“Hard to take in, it was kind of unexpected senseless and just don't understand,” said Lynn.

The family told News 9 that Washington was a graduate of Midwest City High School, played basketball, and just had her birthday last month.

“Fun, everybody loved her, just a good kid,” said Lynn. “She just turned 19, didn't have a chance to experience life or anything.”

The family told News 9 that Washington had also just started college at Langston University.

She was sitting in her bedroom Thursday afternoon, when someone drove by the house and started firing.

Now the family is planning the funeral, and wondering how they're going to pay for it.

They also want to know why their house was targeted, since this is the second drive-by shooting to happen here in less than a week.

“We just wish someone would come forward with any information about this crime so these people can be put to justice,” said Lynn.

Friends of Nesha Washington are planning a candlelight vigil at Kiwanis Park in Midwest City.

It is set for January 3rd, Saturday at 6 p.m.

The family is planning on putting together a memorial fund for Nesha Washington at Bank of America and hope to have it up by Monday.
