Mother pleads for answers after daughter gunned down

A Miami mother is hoping for answers and demanding justice after her 25-year-old daughter was killed in a drive-by shooting outside a club this past weekend.
Lakisha Lampiley and her friends were heading home from a club when a gunman opened fire on their car.
"What you do to each other comes back to you," said a heartbroken Mary Lampiley. "What you do in the dark comes to the light. You should seek and find and I'm going to find out who did that to my daughter."
Lampiley's daughter, who is also the mother of five children, spent Saturday night out with her sister, her cousin and three male friends at Club Romance for hip hop night.
Sometime after 3 a.m., the group hurried to leave the club.
"We were in the car, we were riding to take my sister Lakisha home," said her sister Princess. "We stopped at a red light and a vehicle pulled up on the side of us and started shooting."
Princess' arm was grazed by a bullet as she sat on big sister Lakisha's lap in the back seat. Lakisha was shot twice in the chest, according to her family.
"I seen the blood, her blood, on my pants," Princess said. "I thought it was from me and then she was like, 'I'm hit, I'm hit.' After that, that was it, that was her last words."
The shooting happened less than a mile from the club in Allapattah. The passenger in a black newer model SUV Chevrolet -- possibly a Tahoe -- shot rounds into the car. The SUV then took off heading north.
The group rushed Lakisha to North Shore Hospital but it was too late for the young mother, who was set to celebrate her birthday with her family next month.
"Always giving, always trying to take care of her kids, her siblings. She was just that type of person," her grandmother said.
