    A 25-year-old Florida woman was shot and killed in front of her three young children, leaving her devastated family demanding answers.

    Just before 9:30 p.m. on July 19, police in Lakeland, about 40 miles east of Tampa, responded to a call about shots fired at a home on Monroe Street, according to a statement from the Lakeland Police Department.

    Upon arrival, officers found a woman identified by family and friends as Jeannairy 'Jeannie' Dominguez dead at the scene, local station Fox 13 News, The Ledger, and ABC Action News report.

    She had been shot 11 times, ABC Action News reports.

    She was allegedly killed by shots fired through the front door of the home, The Ledger reports.

    Her three young children ' all under 8 years old ' were in the home at the time of the shooting but were not injured, the statement says.

    Police say it's unclear where the children were in the house at the time of the shooting.

    According to her family, Dominguez's oldest daughter, 8, called her grandmother ' Dominguez's mother ' on FaceTime immediately after her mother had been shot, ABC Action News and The Ledger report.

    The little girl pointed the camera at her mother during the FaceTime call, ABC Action News reports.

    The child described her mother 'hiccupping,' The Ledger reports.

    Dominguez's family is devastated.

    'She was a great mother and a great daughter," Narda Tolentino, Dominguez's mother, told ABC Action News.

    The young mother's family and friends say they believe they know who killed her, ABC Action News, The Ledger and Fox 13 News report.

    "They keep saying they're close to solving the case but they're not,' since no one has been arrested, Tiara Leann, one of Jeannie's friends told Fox 13 News.

    At a Friday press conference, the family joined with a local Black Lives Matter organization to demand answers in her case, The Ledger reports.

    'We do want to thank the LPD for their tireless efforts in their investigation, but we do feel their sacrifices are coming up a bit short,' said Pastor Carl Soto, the organization's vice president.

    Appealing to the killer or killers, Soto said, 'You can't hide forever. What you did is wrong. If your conscience is not eating you up to turn yourselves in then you best believe this family now has multiple organizations and resources to make sure Lakeland Police Department and the State Attorney's Office does their job.'

    On Monday, a spokesperson for the Lakeland police told PEOPLE no arrests have been made in the case.

    The department issued a statement in reaction to the family's demands for answers, saying:

    "We understand that this is an unimaginable tragedy for this family. A team of detectives and LPD personnel have been working tirelessly on this case since responding to the scene this past Sunday.

    "Detectives have interviewed multiple people they believe related to the case and continue to vet all leads thoroughly. Our priority remains doing a prompt but thorough investigation as part of our commitment to the victim's family."

    On Sunday night, Dominguez's family and friends held a candlelight vigil for her.

    "We're here because we want justice for my daughter," Tolentino told Fox13 News.

    "When they take the person responsible, yes, I'll be able to grieve, I'll be able to cry, I'll be able to miss my daughter,' she said.

    Her father, Juan Dominguez, told The Ledger, 'Justice is the only thing we want from [the police].'

    TRIGGERED!

    Sorry, not sorry. This is the Ft. Hood Private all over again. I have close ties to LE and this just infuriates me, I have zero patience for it. Murder investigations take time, certainly more than two weeks. A proper investigation and gathering of evidence is critical to the successful outcome of a trial. Failure to carefully and methodically make a case could mean the killer walks. But fuck all that, right? They want someone arrested NOW, even if it means he walks on a technicality. Stupid, stupid people. Screw them and their threats and demands for immediate arrests. They claim to know who did this - maybe they need to take care of business themselves if they think the police aren't "sacrificing" enough. It will be good practice for when their PD is defunded.
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.

    Central Florida authorities arrested a suspect who they believe shot a woman in the presence of her three children, all age 7 or younger, earlier in July.

    Jacarie Dovontis Moore, 22, of Lakeland, was arrested Monday for the shooting of 25-year-old Jeannairy Dominguez, according to the Lakeland Police Department. Moore faces felony charges of first-degree murder and shooting into a dwelling.

    Officers received reports of a shooting at around 9:30 a.m. on July 19 in a Lakeland home, according to the release.

    When officers arrived they found Dominguez and pronounced her dead at the scene at 9:39 a.m. as a result of her gunshot wounds. Upon investigating, detectives found that Dominguez was shot in the presence of her three children whose ages were 7, 5 and 3.

    None of the children were hurt in the shooting.

    The victim’s family told media outlets in July that her youngest daughter called Jeannie’s mother on FaceTime, showing Jeannie dying. Dominguez was shot through the front door of her home and police found at least 11 shots were fired at the victim.

    Very little physical evidence was found at the scene, but detectives began suspecting Moore after finding out he was an “estranged boyfriend” of Dominguez.

    Moore was already in Polk County Jail for other unrelated charges when officers served the arrest warrant.
