A Grieving Mother Wants Answers

A Heartland mother still doesn

MGN Online

A Heartland mother still doesn't have the answers that she deserves. A year ago Thursday, her son was shot and killed at a popular Omaha and Council Bluffs attraction.

Shamari Richards was killed and two others injured that day. No one is being held responsible for his death. His mother says this gives her great pain.

“I gave life for this child and I brought him up into this world," said Lorraine Richards. "I taught him respect and to respect other people. And for someone to come on in and take his life like that, that was very wrong.”

Two people were arrested for the homicide, but both have been let go, the charges dropped. Prosecutors say there were plenty of witnesses, but a serious lack of cooperation.
