LAKE CITY, Fla. - Police in Lake City are trying to find out who shot and killed a 30-year-old mother.

Police say they found Brittney Graham lying on a back porch dead on Alma Avenue Sunday night just before 10:30.

“She was lovely, I adored her,” said Clarence Troupe Jr., who is grieving the loss of his close friend. “I can’t understand why something like this happened.”

Troupe said he and several others were all hanging out together, just hours before she was shot and killed. Police say they found Graham lying on her porch, dead from a gunshot wound. Friends tell Action News Jax Graham was just getting home when she was hit by a bullet. 

“I don’t know why,” Troupe Jr. said.

Friends say Graham was a mother of three small children.

“Nobody should be without their mom this early,” Troupe Jr. said.

Action News Jax found out late Monday night Graham lived with her boyfriend, who wasn’t around. The landlord was boarding up the windows and told us off camera he’s not sure where Graham’s boyfriend is. Action News Jax reached out to police to see if they have talked to him, but haven’t heard back.
