On Sunday, May 30, 12-year old Todriana Peters was shot and killed while leaving a graduation party with her cousin.

The party took place on Delery Street in the Lower Ninth Ward. Two teenage males were also wounded in the shooting, which DA Williams says was retaliatory gunfire after an earlier shootout.

Each of the indicted suspects are facing the folowing charges:

  • Second-degree murder
  • Conspiracy to commit second-degree murder
  • Two counts of attempted second-degree murder

“She was one of those old souls. She always seemed older than she was,” said Bonnie Peters, Todriana’s grandmother.

Peters was with her granddaughter just hours before she died. Some of her fondest memories are hanging out on the porch and her granddaughter’s cooking.

Family members remember Peters as a girl who loved to dance, loved fashion and enjoyed making TikTok social media videos.
