“You ever had your heart just stepped on and [it] went to the bottom of your stomach? Yeah, that’s what that was like,” Webster’s brother Demarco Thomas told ABC affiliate WBMA, reflecting on the news of his sister’s death.

An investigation is ongoing. The discovery of the two bodies followed another shooting nearby that killed four people just an hour prior.

Police Chief Scott Thurmond addressed the two incidents in a statement, saying, “Birmingham experienced an unfathomable amount of senseless violence.”

In a statement posted on Facebook, Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin said one of the two victims last seen on Valentine’s Day was his cousin.

“My family is no stranger to the devastating consequences of violence. The pain never gets easier,” the mayor wrote. “This level of loss is distressing, unacceptable and cannot – must not – be tolerated.”
