Family and friends identify woman killed Wednesday night in Shreveport

Local News

Family and friends of Tomika Alexander say she was the kind of person to give you the shirt off her back.

Alexander was shot and killed Wednesday night at Pier Landing Apartments. 

Shreveport Police are calling it a murder-suicide. 

A tribute to Alexander can be seen at the McDonald’s on North Market Street where she once worked. 

The manager says she was a gentle soul.

“I just don’t understand why someone would do this to her. She’d give her last., she would give her shirt off her back to someone you know” said AJ Jenkins. 

Even Alexander’s sister said it was in her nature to help those in need.

Her statement on Facebook reads ‘For clarity, this WAS NOT a domestic violence incident. This was my sister being the woman she was helping a mom and her young son who had no place to go!’ 

Police say investigators are continuing to gather additional information and evidence as the case remains active.
