By Black Radio Network Staff

                NEW YORK - A 61-year-old mother of five with 12 grandchildren who was married for 36 years was watching local residents in Harlem play dominoes when gunshots rang out and killed her.

                Police and witnesses say Mrs. Odessa Simms was the victim of random gunfire from unknown sources.

                Mrs. Simms was a well-liked member of the Harlem community.  Her death brought many locals to the streets to honor her life and express anger with her death.  “Enough is enough,” they shouted, adding “Stop the violence.” 

 

                 Police have some leads about the identities of the shooters as the investigation continues.
