ORIGINAL STORY:

ANDERSON, Ind. — An Anderson woman is dead, and police continue to search for her killer following a deadly shooting Sunday night.

Anderson police are still investigating what led to the shooting. At the same time, the victim’s friends and family spent all day at the scene mourning the death.

There were plenty of hugs and tears on Forkner Street in Anderson Monday.

“Right now it’s hard,” said the victim’s cousin, Djuana King.

King joined several friends and family of Arneshia Fuller and painted the name “Neisha” on the street and fence.  

APD said they were called to the 1400 block of Forkner St. on October 25 at 8:27 p.m. and found Fuller suffering from gunshot wounds. Her family still doesn’t know exactly what happened.

“No, I really don’t, and it’s devastating,” said King.

The 28-year-old victim died at the hospital. Her cousin recalls her contagious smile.

“It’s difficult to explain because Arneshia was everything. She was the life of the party,” said King.

Police were able to talk to several witnesses, but so far, no one has been arrested for the shooting, and the motive remains unclear.

“Well that is still part of our investigation. It’s something we’re still looking into and vetting right now at this point,” said Major Joel Sandefur with APD. “We’ve looked into some things, but nothing that we can really share.”

As for Fuller’s family, they lit candles and hung balloons to honor her life and are hopeful her killer is quickly brought to justice.

“She was a loving person. Her life got taken away over I don’t know what, but she was awesome,” said King.

Anyone with information about this shooting should call APD’s Criminal Investigation Division at 765-648-6730 or Crime Stoppers at 765-649-8310.
