The family of a woman who was shot and killed outside an Atlanta-area bank over the weekend will not be evicted after getting help from media mogul Tyler Perry.
Friends and family of Tynesha Evans came together Monday night to honor her memory. Her children got emotional as they listened to dozens of friends and coworkers who knew her well.
“I know right now she’s looking down and she’s smiling on all us. She’s smiling. She wants us to be happy,” said Audrey Turner, Evans’ daughter.
The crowd gathered outside the Wells Fargo on Main Street in Alpharetta where the single mother of four died Saturday. Police say her boyfriend Oniel Inniss shot and killed her in the parking lot.
On Tuesday, before all four children faced him in court, they woke up to find the electricity cut off in their apartment.
It happened just one day after Tyler Perry agreed to pay their rent for the next six months after the family faced eviction.
Inniss has been charged with murder and aggravated assault with a firearm. A judge did not grant him bond.
