The fatal shooting of an 18-year-old Black woman, which some say is a hate crime, has caused outrage and people are asking for justice with the hashtag #JusticeForNakia.

Na’Kia Crawford, who graduated from North High School less than two weeks ago, was fatally shot Sunday afternoon, June 14, while driving with her grandmother in Akron.

Na’Kia was shot multiple times while inside a vehicle in Akron Sunday, according to a release from the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office and the Akron Police Department.

On Sunday at around 1:25 p.m., police responded to an area just north of downtown, at the intersection of North Howard Street and West North Street for a shooting. Officers found the 18-year-old victim, identified by the medical examiner as Na’Kia Crawford, inside the vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds.

She was transported to Akron City hospital where she later died from her injuries on Monday at around 1:12 a.m. Her grandmother, who was not injured, was in the car with her at the time of the shooting.

Her grandmother reportedly claimed a random white man walked up to the car and shot at Na’Kia multiple times.

Officers recovered shell casings from the scene but no arrests have been made.

On Monday afternoon, family, friends, and even strangers blocked the intersection where the incident happened in protest, calling for justice for the deceased. A candlelight vigil was scheduled at the intersection Monday evening.
