CINCINNATI -- Crime scene tape that once blocked a Sedamsville home was replaced Tuesday by balloons and a community in mourning.
Family and friends gathered Tuesday evening for a candlelight vigil honoring the life of 11-year-old Shanti Lanza, who authorities say was shot and killed by her father early Sunday morning.
Deandre Kelley was arrested Sunday on a charge of reckless homicide.
Police said he arrived at the home on 800 Delhi Avenue intoxicated after 2 a.m. His girlfriend of 15 years, and Lanza's mother, forced him out of the house.
He would then fire four shots into the air, authorities said.
One of those bullets ended up in a second-story bedroom of the house. Lanza was in that room, and the bullet struck her in the chest.
She was taken to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
Antwone Kelley said his brother Deandre left the scene without knowing what happened. He would find out later when news spread that he was wanted.
“It was a bunch of crying. He didn't mean to do it. What more can I say? He didn't mean to do it,” Antwone said. "He's more heartbroken than anybody.”
