PINE HILLS, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - Some residents in Orlando are fed up with crime as they mourn the loss of a loving grandmother.
Norma Jean Brewer went out for a bicycle ride on Wednesday night like she often did, but when she reached the intersection of Cypress Street and Willie Mays Parkway, deputies say she was shot to death.
"I was shocked like, 'What?' Keisha Walker said. "This really hit home because she was known, didn't bother nobody."
Walker says her aunt was a mother of three and grandmother to eight children. She describes Norma Jean as a hardworking person.
"She'd get up at 4 o'clock every morning. Do what she had to do, go to work," she said.
"She was sweet to people. She didn't deserve that," Matarina Walker said.
She says last month two men shot and killed her brother George Dallas. One of the suspects is still on the loose.
"He died sitting on the porch over there at Lake Mann Garden, and [someone] shot him and killed him for no reason."
She says too many innocent people are dying.
"This is getting out of hand," she said. "There's too many people getting killed for no reason. When you see stuff you need to tell it. That's the only way we're going to get our community back," Matarina Walker said.
As Keisha helps organize a candlelight vigil for her aunt Friday night, she too is fed up with crime.
"We gotta put the guns down and get along with another," she said.
