The victim, Jasayde Holder, is described by all that knew her as a creative and active youngster who was gearing up to enter the 5th grade this upcoming school year. It doesn't take a detective to figure out that she, obviously, wasn't the intended target of the shooting, yet she's the one that paid the price, nevertheless.

She was gunned down on West Earl Drive in Vineland. Anyone that has any kind of surveillance footage on or around the 700 block of that section of the street is encouraged to hand it over to the authorities. It may be able to assist them with their investigation.

Holder did not meet her demise on the scene. She was transported to Inspira Medical Center where they tried to treat her injuries, but she didn't make it. Another young life gone way too soon as a result of gun violence. If you or anyone you know may have any information that could lead to an arrest, you're encouraged to reach out to the prosecutor's office. They can be reached at 609-579-1431.
