The home is near where unarmed teen Michael Brown was fatally shot by police officer Darren Wilson starting a year of protests and violent outrage. Jamyla's mother was shot in the leg and is recovering. Police detectives worked to identify 21 year old De'Eris Brown who lives in the St Louis suburbs as a suspect who confessed to the killing. Police did not release a possible motive for the shooting but said Jamyla was not targeted, and the shooter was on foot and alone at the time of the crime. In a viral video, African American mother and former Navy officer and IRS worker Peggy Hubbard went viral with a video which slammed the silence of Black Lives Matter protesters who that night instead rallied for a man who was shot for pointing a gun at police, and should focus less on police brutality and more on black on black crime. Local station KMOV reveals that Brown was arrested last year for pulling a gun on a Subway employee in their car park and threatening a mass shooting and 'shoot up the place'. The death prompted vigils and marches and calls for an end to violence. Victim Jamyla was black, as is her alleged assailant, and the girl lived in a predominantly African-America neighborhood. Story of the arrest was covered by Daily Mail in UK and Russia’s RT.
