Mom, 19, Found Fatally Shot in Kansas City Home -- Now Cops Looking for 2 Persons of Interest
No suspects have been named but the victim's mother says she was afraid for her life in the days before the shooting
Kansas City, Mo., police are asking for the public’s help in locating two persons of interest in the case of Breana Robison, a 19-year-old mother who was found shot to death in her apartment on Friday.
“The homicide unit is looking for the following persons of interest regarding the homicide that occurred on 06/28/2019 at 620 Blue Ridge Blvd.,” the Kansas City police department said in a statement provided to PEOPLE. The department also urged anyone with information to call the Homicide Unit at (816) 234-5043 or the tip line at (816) 447-TIPS.
On Friday, Kansas City police found Robison fatally shot in her apartment after officers responded to a call reporting an armed person, according to a police spokesperson. When they arrived at her home, they found her door partially opened. Upon entering, they discovered Robison suffering from a gunshot wound. She was later pronounced dead at the scene.
“I want justice. I want somebody to please speak up,” Kristina Panos said of daughter Breana Robison, Fox4 reports. “And I’m just begging, begging for justice for me, for her whole family and especially for her son.”
Robison leaves behind a 3-year-old son, who will be adopted by Panos, Fox4 reports.
“I have to explain to her son that is in my house that his mom is up in heaven,” Panos told the station. “That’s going to be the hardest thing that I’m ever going to have to do in my life, on top of burying my daughter.”
Panos said she learned of her daughter’s death Saturday morning at 4 a.m. She said she lost her voice from screaming.
“Nobody deserves to be shot, murdered,” Panos told Fox4. “She was murdered.”
No formal suspects have been named so far, according to police. Panos told Fox4 her daughter had a “big heart” and was scared for her life before her death.
“She sent some messages to somebody that people were threatening to shoot her three days prior,” Panos said.
