A family is heartbroken after a 20-year-old woman was killed and three others were injured after a shooting.

This happened during the Brown Sugar Festival in the Harlem community of Clewiston. Meanwhile, Hendry County deputies are still looking for the person who did this.

Evereonna Sankey’s family wants people in the community to know the beautiful soul that was taken from them due to gun violence. They are also pressing for answers about what happened Saturday night.

Her mom was once the vice president of the Brown Sugar Festival.

A picture is worth a thousand words, and everyone in Evereonna’s family says the picture of her from her nursing school graduation says it all. She was destined to make a difference.
