DETROIT – Two people have been taken into custody in connection to a drive-by shooting which killed a 14-year-old girl and critically injured her 17-year-old brother Aug. 3 in the 19000 block of Waltham Street. 

Jamesha McWilliams was shot in her chest. She was rushed to a hospital by family members but died from the gunshot wound. Her brother, Jeffrey McWilliams, was listed in critical condition but has been released from the hospital.
