McGraw continued, telling News4, “At some points, we had hope that she would be able to do it. They took her off the machine and put her right back on because she couldn’t do it.”

“She was trying to fight, but she couldn’t do it. We had a lot of hope thinking we would have Milan here, thinking Iyana would live through her. However, God had other plans.”

According to reports, Iyana lived with her boyfriend in the apartment where she was shot. It’s believed that the boyfriend may have been the intended target of the shooting. Now the aunt hopes part of God’s plan also includes justice for Iyana and Milan.

According to an arrest warrant obtained by News4, police found guns, ammunition, mailing envelopes, and marijuana in vacuum-sealed packages at the scene of the crime. As of January 30, no arrests have been made in connection with the crime. Although, when a suspect is arrested, they will now be charged with double murder.
