Mother of six Juquina Harris killed in Silver Fox parking lot

Posted by Mustang Sally, Mayor of Bang Town on Thu, Nov 18, 2010 at 4:29 PM

A 27-year-old mother of six, Juquina Harris, was killed outside of the Silver Fox Club on Statesville Avenue.

According to a release from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department:

Officers responded to a call for service which came in as a shooting in the parking lot of club Silver Fox.   When officers arrived on scene, they found a female lying on the ground outside the club suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.  The victim was pronounced deceased on scene by Medic at 2:13 a.m.  Initial statements from witnesses in the parking lot area are that several subjects were involved in a physical altercation in the parking lot near the entrance to the club.  Shortly after the fight began, one of these subjects pulled a handgun and multiple shots were fired in the parking lot.

Sadly, Harris's death won't be met with sympathy and compassion. People will ignore the fact that she was a mother, a sister and a daughter and focus on the fact that she was at a strip club when she was killed ... as if that makes the shooting less horrific.

***UPDATE***

Police have arrested two men and charged them in connection with Harris's shooting.

Elijah Akeem Ashford, , was arrested by the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team shortly after being notified that a murder warrant had been signed against him.  Elijah Ashford was arrested without incident at the intersection of Tappan Place and Academy Street.   The Violent Criminal Apprehension Team arrested Aaron Ashford without incident, at 6602 Wisteria Drive, shortly after 3:30 p.m., on Friday.  VCAT worked quickly to take both brothers into custody.  From the time that VCAT began working the cases until the arrests of both brothers were made, less than a day had passed.  Along with the tireless efforts of Homicide Unit Detectives, this case was brought to a quick resolution.

At this stage of the investigation, it is believed that the two subjects who arrived at CMC were bystanders and that one of the subjects was struck by gunfire.

Well I kinda knew the lady and her kids and it's sad to say that she was a bad mom but was also the only mom those kids had. She was a stripper and was always high and her kids suffered. They were dirty, had nappy hair, and ill mannered. I was a teacher to a few of them. Im sorry that things happened the way they did but i hope her kids will have a chance at a better life somewhere outside the ghetto and not end up like her and start having kids at 14 with 4 diffrent baby daddies!!

ok dear well maybe you should proof read your post the next time you would like to respond to something. Like I said she and all her kids are GHETTO...especially the boy! She could not take care of you all and yes whenever i came in contact with her she smelled like weed and looked a mess. Just look at her facebook page ?!?!? With 5 girls i don't think dressing like the stripper that she was is a great role model. But whatever still all in all she did not deserve to die that's not the point. She was a very young mom and I hope her kids do not follow in her footsteps. She could not provide for her kids and welfare was the great life...........sooooooooooooooooo again thanks but no thanks and if your really her daughter then god bless you and learn from her mistakes

Yeah, it's really scary to think that the safe place for our cars can be a threat to people.

What a frightening display of ignorance this thread is. We are witnessing the destruction of our language. It is so sad to watch the USA sinking slowly into the swamp of ignorance and paranoia. We will soon be a third world country with a huge military that will have to teach reading and writing in boot camp..
