Officers were present when she arrived, and she spotted Alexis and Yarbough laying on the driveway. Mom noticed Alexis’ leg twitch and assumed they were both locked up, like most couples are when they quarrel at home. After hearing cops seek a medic bag, Alexis’ mother feared she was in grave danger. Alexis was lying in the driveway, blood dripping down the pavement like water when you wash a car. Officers informed Alexis’ mother that when they arrived, they saw Yarbrough shoot her daughter again (after she was already shot previously to their coming up) He then laid on the ground next to Alexis’s riddled body, pushing the pistol over & shouted “I surrender”.

Alexis was taken to the hospital and later pronounced dead. She was shot numerous times in the body. She had three shots to her tummy and one to each side of her hips. Her side cuts were discovered while she was carrying her daughter. She moved her weight one way to protect her daughter and another to avoid getting shot on the opposite side. When Alexis passed out from her injuries, her daughter was able to hide beneath a vehicle and was found safe by cops. Alexis was a family-oriented woman who adored her two kids, who are now three and eight months old and must cope without her. Ky’raun Yarbrough was arrested and charged with Alexis’s murder. He was charged with first and second degree assault in 2019 at the age of 16 after shooting numerous youngsters and was released.
