Young Siblings Were Shot In The Head
Another young mother has been accused of brutally murdering her children.
25-year-old Yokeia Smith, is being held for questioning in the shooting deaths of her two children, after officers found her waving a large shotgun on the side of a main road in St. Louis, Missouri.
Police arrived at Ms. Smith’s apartment to find two of Smith’s children dead.
Yokela Smith, 4, and Levada Brown, 5, had been shot, while a third child, 8, was also in the apartment but was unharmed.
Autopsies on Thursday determined the two children were both shot once in the head at close range with a shotgun and died instantly of the ‘devastating’ injuries.
Smith has not been formally charged with a crime.
After allegedly committing the shootings, she hopped in her car and ran over a father and his young son.
