PETERSBURG, Va. – A mural honoring the 19-year-old woman killed outside the Artist Loft Apartments earlier this month was unveiled Saturday.
Toni Knight was walking with her two young nieces on a Saturday afternoon when gunshots were fired, she fell to the ground and her young niece cradled her until first responders arrived.
A mural on the steps of the building memorializes Knight and serves as a reminder of the lasting pain of violence.
“I just wanted to have something that would bring some type of brightness to the darkness that did happen,” artist Gina of A Little Touch by G said.
Two others were also injured in the shooting that killed Knight.
