One of those bullets hit Kennedy in the head as she was in a car with her aunt and mom. Kennedy was taken to the hospital for emergency surgery.

Kennedy died the day after Christmas on December 26, 2021.

Although Kennedy was not the intended target and was killed by a stray bullet, a jury still convicted Daquan of murder at his August 2022 court trial.

Daquan was found guilty of murder by a Fulton County jury. His sentencing hearing has not been scheduled yet.
