A 22-year-old mother was allegedly gunned down by three teenagers after she told them to “get a job” when they asked her boyfriend for a cigarette.


Kayla Peterson was shot at approximately 3 PM on Saturday as she stood outside her home with her boyfriend, William Bailey.

The allegedly shooters, Todavia Cleckley and Marcus Velasquez, both aged 14, will be tried as adults for the murder in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania once they are apprehended.


A third boy, 13-year-old Kyle Goosby, is already in custody and has been charged with conspiracy to commit homicide.

Two of the boys who killed the 22-year-old mother posted photos of them armed with guns on Facebook.

The boys had followed Bailey from a nearby store asking for cigarettes and got into an argument with him and Peterson, according to court documents.


One teen pulled out a gun and fired a single shot at the 22-year-old Peterson, who is the mother of a young girl.

Peterson was flown to Allegheny General Hospital, but died from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen two hours later.

Velasquez is charged with criminal homicide, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and conspiracy to commit homicide in this latest crime. Cleckley is charged with conspiracy to commit homicide.

Beaver County District Attorney Anthony Berosh said he will prosecute both teens as adults.
