CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office has arrested six people in connection to a homicide that took place early Tuesday morning.

A 13-year-old girl was shot and killed in a driveby on Cleveland Street in the Cheraw area during the early morning hours of July 26. The sheriff’s office says she was doing nothing wrong.

“They took somebody that we really loved, the life of the family,” cousin Felicia Hudson said.

With the assistance of multiple law enforcement agencies, Kyron Robinson, Michael Flowers Jr., Michael Johnson, Timothy Byrd, Trevoin Gary and Genesis Evans were all arrested within 15 hours of the homicide.

Evans is charged with obstruction of justice and the other five suspects are being charged with murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, attempted murder and malicious injury to personal property.

“Y’all took her soul, yall took her one and only daughter, y’all look the last child she had,” a family friend said.

Relatives say the teenager was just a month away from her 14th birthday coming up in August.

“They’re trying to cope with it, she was loving, caring, she loved to smile, she loved to talk and stuff like this, this is devastating what had happened to her,” Hudson said.

Family members say she was in the house playing a videogame when the shooting happened.

Now they’re trying to puzzle how to live life without the centerpiece of the family.

“Without her, the vibe is gone, without her, the vibe is not the same, mama, the vibe is gone baby, it’s not the same coming down here without you.”
