“I hope y’all know what the f–k y’all did,” Jasmine Kelly, 19, raged on the Facebook live video filmed just over two hours after her 22-year-old sister Italia Marie Kelly was shot dead leaving a Davenport rally Sunday.
“My sister is gone because one of you, a protester, shot my sister. A protester, not the police!” she said of Italia, who was the eldest of five siblings.
“I lost my sister because of you. You! You are so mad at the police that you are hurting everyone else. You’re so mad at the police, you guys killed my sister,” she cried.
“By you’re f—ing ignorance I gotta bury my sister. I gotta bury my sister because y’all brought guns. It wasn’t a rubber bullet, it was a f—ing gun.”
Kelly blamed the “ignorance of every single one of y’all that decided to shoot into a f—ing crowd” for the bullet that “just happened to hit my sister.”
Kelly vowed to “find out who the f–k did it,” saying it will be “the last thing you’ll ever remember.”
“Now I gotta bury the only person I had in my life, the person that took care of me, the person who took beatings for me so I didn’t have to, the person who was there for everything,” she sobbed.
Davenport police chief Paul Sikorski said the fatal shooting of Kelly and another person elsewhere in the city are under investigation, with help from the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigations. Another person was injured in gunfire outside a jewelry store the same night, he said.
