EDMOND, Okla. (KFOR) — Two people have been arrested in connection with a homicide that happened in the parking lot of a McDonald’s restaurant back in June.
“My gosh, I was screaming, instantly I got goosebumps like everywhere,” Courtney Thompson told News 4.
Thompson said that was her reaction Monday when Zsa Zsa Hill and Anthony Nelson were arrested in connection with the murder of her friend, 23-year-old Brooklyn Hampton.
“Just so happy that there will be some sort of justice,” Thompson said.
It happened on June 17th in the parking lot of the McDonald’s near Sante Fe and 15th.
“There’s been 10 shots fired out here in my parking lot of out here by the drive thru,” a 911 caller told dispatch.
According to a search warrant, Brooklyn works at the gas station next door to the McDonald’s and was taking trash out to a dumpster when she was shot several times.
The suspects also allegedly rammed into her car.
Brooklyn later died at the hospital.
Family members told police Brooklyn had been getting death threats from someone on Snapchat.
“For them to know her routine, know her schedule, know her routine, know that she takes the trash out every night at 10 o’ clock, it was definitely a target,” Thompson said.
Police are still investigating the extent of Nelson and Hill’s involvement in the murder.
Nelson is also facing charges related to a home invasion and shooting on Sunday near NW 122nd and MacArthur that critically injured a 19-year-old.
“The case is not closed. We still expect to make more arrests,” Emily Ward with Edmond PD said.
That news is coming as a big relief for those who are mourning the loss of a young life.
She just had the biggest heart,” Thompson said. “She took care of so many people. She would give you the shirt off her back.”
