Julii Johnson, 34, was shot and killed on January 13, 2017 in Warren, Michigan.
Police said they received a 911 call about 7:30 a.m. that a female was shot and was in the front of a condo complex. Officers found Julii on the lawn, next to her 2016 Ford Fusion, with multiple gunshot wounds.
She was shot outside her boyfriend's condo. The boyfriend made a phone call to her mother at 7:33 a.m. Her mother said he told her," Miss Johnson, Julii got shot." He said he heard her say, "Oh God," and saw a boy with a hoodie on running down the street...
Julii occasionally stayed at her boyfriend's home, where he resides with his teenage son. "She had been there all night and was going to work" at the time of the shooting, Officer Mills said.
Police used K-9s to try to pick up the path of where Julii's boyfriend said the gunman ran, but the dogs didn't pick up any scent. Julii's boyfriend was questioned in connection with her death but no charges have been filed. Police said the boyfriend has been "semi-cooperative" with investigators. "He's very guarded in his statements," Officer Mills said.
Police have ruled out robbery as a factor and do not believe she was randomly targeted.
Julii leaves behind a 17-year old daughter. Friends say she was sweet, kind, joyful, a loving mother and a wonderful friend.
Julii was laid to rest this morning. Please remember her loved ones, daughter and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult day. Rest peacefully Julii...
