Zakia Bibbs

Dozens of green and white balloons filled the sky over Tuscaloosa on Wednesday afternoon as friends and family of Zakia Bibbs gathered for a special remembrance of the slain 25-year old.

“My sister, she was a wonderful person,” said Brittney Thomas, the victim’s sister. “She was an awesome person. She was a wonderful mother. She was a wonderful friend. She was just an amazing type of person. Anything anybody wants if she had it, she would give it to them. She was also like our mother. Any time we needed somewhere to stay at she was there opening her doors, her and her fiance. ”

As they reminisced and grieved together, Bibbs’ loved ones released balloons of her favorite colors into the air.

Last week, Bibbs was the victim of a road rage shooting incident that left two others injured. Police have still not named a person or persons of interest. Anyone who may have any information about the shooting is encouraged to contact the Tuscaloosa Police at 205-464-8690.
