Mom Of 5 Young Children Shot By Her Boyfriend As She Pulls Into Her Driveway After Work

Sharika Sharie Bowman was a 34-year-old Mom of five young children living in Georgia.

Her family and friends affectionately called her “Redd”.

She was originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Shakira was the oldest of four children.

She had moved to Stone Mountain, Georgia from Michigan to start a better life for herself and her own children, too.

Her friends describe her as have a huge, contagious smile and a passion for drawing.


She and her boyfriend, 30-year-old Keitren Foots, had been together for quite some time.

Things seemed to be going well for the couple.

Sharika’s children liked him and that was extremely important to Sharika.

She loved her children more than anything, and they were her whole world.

For this Mom, the Keitren and her children all got along was a big deal.

However, the newfound perfect life that Sharika had started would soon be no more.

Having to be a single mother and provide for one child is extremely difficult.

For Sharika to have to provide for all five of her children, who ranged in ages 16, 13, 15, 1, and 1 month old, nothing was easy.
