TAMPA, Fla. (FOX 13) - Takiya Fullwood’s family members are pleading for help. The 18-year-old was shot and killed at a pop up block party in Tampa last month and her killer is still out there.
Tampa police said they believe there were multiple witnesses to the murder, but so far few of the people there that night have come forward.
Takiya was just 18 years old. She graduated from East Bay High School and was a biology major at Florida Atlantic University with a dream to become a dentist.
Those dreams were shattered when someone shot her at a party when she was visiting friends and family in Tampa last month.
Her family said they believe she was targeted by the gunman but, aren’t sure why.
According to their attorney, Pamela Robinson, Takiya was leaving the party with her brother and cousin when she was shot. Robinson explained the three went to drive away from the massive block party, when someone shot into the back of the car where Takiya was sitting.
A $3,000 reward is being offered through Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay for anyone who can provide information that leads to an arrest in the case. Tips can be directed to
The Fullwoods said they feel confident that Tampapolice and the state attorney’s office will find Takiya’s killer and bring that person to justice. They plan to hold a press conference Friday at 2 p.m.
