‘I could hear the gunshots from church’ – Philippi mom who lost daughter in deadly shootings

The last time Ernes Anderson saw her daughter was last Friday night to attend a church service near their home in Marcus Garvey, Philippi.

A short while later, her daughter Siya, 20, and five other friends were shot dead in their yard in what appears to have been a targeted hit, GroundUp reports.

“I could hear the gunshots from church but nobody paid attention until a young boy was sent for me,” said Anderson.
