PALM BAY, Fla. — A month ago, a shooting injured four teenagers at The Park at Palm Bay Apartments.

She said she still finds it difficult to recount what happened.

“It sounded like noise to me in the home, where the kids were probably banging on something. So, I didn’t jump up right away. But, when they came around and they shot up my front door, it sounded like it was in the home shooting, and that’s when I ran,” Moncion said.

Three other teens were also injured in the drive-by shooting off Hadley Circle.

Palm Bay police said investigators are actively pursuing leads in the case.

Moncion said the shooting has taken an emotional toll.

“This happened in my home and should never have happened, not with children at all, at all. Their mothers want justice, we all want justice,” she said.
