A man is on the run after allegedly shooting his pregnant girlfriend to death in front of their five children early Monday morning.
Deputies found Shaterica Anderson, 28, with four gunshot wounds in her home on Cypresswood Green Drive.
Her long-time boyfriend and the father of her five children, Johnny Ray Landry, has been charged with murder.
Anderson’s brother, Jacoby Ashton, said his family has been on edge as it’s been four days since his sister’s alleged killer hasn’t been found.
“Right now, we are not getting any sleep,” Ashton said.
He said his sister was pregnant at the time, and she had plans to tell the family on Thanksgiving.
“She loved her kids. They were like her best friends,” Ashton said.
Their oldest child, a 9-year-old, told family members that Landry called her the morning her mother was killed.
“He told her, her mom was gone, but we aren’t sure the exact details,” Ashton said.
Landry has a lengthy criminal past, including charges of alleged violence against Anderson.
He was out on bond for making a terroristic threat towards Anderson.
In 2016, he was charged with assaulting her. However, the case was dismissed.
Anderson was also in the middle of a separate legal battle.
A GoFundMe was created for Shaterica Anderson for anyone who would like to donate.
