MILWAUKEE — Thousands of dollars have been raised for the 16-year-old girl who was shot and killed while working at Burger King on Jan 2.

Niesha Harris Brazell was working at the Burger King on West Capitol Drive in Milwaukee when a suspect tried to rob the place and ended up shooting her. Brazell later died from gunshot wounds, according to family and police.

Carnevor, a Milwaukee steakhouse, is hosting one of the fundraisers to help raise money for her family.

The restaurant originally tried to sell five dinner tickets for $1,000 each. However, they increased the number to 10 due to increase demand. All the proceeds will go to the family. In return, those who participate will be treated to a fancy dinner and various bottles of wine.

In addition to this fundraiser, the family has created their own GoFundMe as well.
