As investigators continue to search for suspects, neighbors on Latimer Lane plan to keep 65-year-old Lai Robinson's memory alive.
Robinson died at a local hospital hours after a shooting at her home on June 25. She was known as the "candy lady" to neighbors on the street, often selling sweet treats from her home.
Police said one suspect approached a window of the residence while another forced his way through the front door. They said the suspect at the window fired a handgun, hitting the woman in the right shoulder.
No arrests have been made yet, and neighbors are ready to see someone behind bars.
"I hope and pray they do get them because that was ridiculous. That is something petty. You know what I mean? Nobody deserves to lose their life over something so stupid," said Adrian Long.
Neighbors plan to have a vigil for Robinson Friday, June 28 at 6:30 p.m. on Latimer Lane.
"It's sad when a tragedy like this comes, and that's how you come together. So, we do have to pull together through this tragedy in this neighborhood; we really do," Long said.
Investigators said the public may be able to help find those responsible for Robinson's murder.
"We just ask that if anybody happens to remember something that they saw that night that maybe they haven't told police yet or if you see anything out of the ordinary - make sure that you call police. Because even if you don't think it's a vital importance, it could be a very important fact that we need," said Ashley Rains with Mobile Police.
