According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, the shooting happened after an argument inside the store that escalated in the parking lot. McClendon’s family, however, said that’s not what happened.
Family members said McClendon and three of her cousins were in the car waiting for her mom who was inside paying. They said the woman who shot McClendon pulled up in her car and almost hit them. Family members said they told the woman she almost hit them and the woman jumped out of the car and yelled at them.
“She’s gone. My niece lost her child because somebody got a gun,” Ghent said.
According to the family, McClendon’s mother, who’s pregnant, came out and told them to talk to her, not McClendon. The family said the woman tried to fight McClendon’s mother, the teen stood up for her mom and the woman shot the 16-year-old.
