A mother who lost her 14 year old daughter to gun violence is now asking the public for help. 14 year old Lecent Ross was killed by a gun at an apartment on Jamestown Crescent Thursday, in an apartment with several teens and a parent.
Toronto Police don’t know yet if Lecent was holding the weapon when it went off or if she was shot by someone else.
The gun is considered illegal and was taken by police.
The Ross family has described Lecent as a, “straight A student on her way to becoming a lawyer.” The family has also created a Go Fund Me page to help raise funds to fight against gun violence in their neighbourhood.
