Miyanna Destiny Jelks
A morning like any other. Wasn’t.
The 9-year-old was a third-grader at Emerson School. On a morning like any other, her parents left her and her siblings at home, under the watch of her 10-year-old brother, to shop for clothes.
On March 10, 2018, Miyanna Destiny Jelks was accidentally shot in the neck by her brother in their Milwaukee home. Her parents rushed her to St. Joseph's Hospital when they got home. She was pronounced dead shortly before 1 p.m.
