Crystal Bellamy at first thought the gunshots she heard was just the television. Then she heard the children begin to cry.
That’s when she went into the room and found a cover thrown over her sister’s head.
‘Like it was already a crime scene,’ she told WJAX. ‘That’s when I pulled the cover and saw she’d been shot.’
Police arrived at the Waycross home on Owens Street at 1.55am and Shanique Bellamy was pronounced dead at the scene.

Davis was arrested more than an hour away from the home at an apartment complex in St Marys, according to First Coast News.
Bellamy’s family said Davis is a US Army veteran who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.
They said he left the army after he saw someone get killed.
Crystal said she was glad she didn’t go into the bedroom right away when she heard the gunshots.
‘He probably would have shot me too,’ she told News 4 Jax. ‘He didn’t like me.’
Davis is being held without bond at the Camden County Jail.
