Aaliyah Antonette Shakuria Collick

A woman was fatally shot in a daylight drive-by shooting in Accomack County on Monday, Dec. 4, and police have not made an arrest.

Aaliyah Antonette Shakuria Collick, 24, of Painter, was pronounced dead at the scene, Accomack County Sheriff Todd Wessells said.

A 23-year-old male also was injured by gunfire in the incident, which happened at 31518 Keller Pond Road between Painter and Keller.

The male’s name was not released by police.

The male was Collick’s boyfriend, said Collick’s mother, Delaware resident Tyniece Sheppard.

Sheppard said her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend were mistaken for another couple that recently moved into the neighborhood.

“We’re very hurt,” she said. “I’m crushed. It’s unbelievable. I wish we knew who did it so they can be punished for this.

“She and her boyfriend were innocent bystanders. They were actually after someone else.”

The Eastern Shore emergency operations center on Dec. 4 at 3:44 p.m. received a report of gunshot victims, Wessells said in a prepared release.

When they arrived at the scene, deputies found the man and deceased woman. The male was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and is listed in stable condition.

Sheppard said her daughter had no insurance, so she is raising money to help with funeral costs.

Mail financial assistance for Collick’s services to McPherson Funeral and Cremation Services Inc., 309 North St., Milford, DE 19963.

“She hadn’t even lived life yet,” said Sheppard. “She was still a baby.”
