NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - At only 20 years old, Milan Arriola should have had a lifetime of hopes and dreams ahead of her. Instead, New Orleans police said she was fatally wounded by while riding in a car in Gentilly Friday evening.
“I prayed for Milan, I prayed for her. I was raised up in a house with five brothers and a daddy, and I never been around women, girls, so I knew the kind of relationship that I wanted with my daughter,” said her mother, NOPD Officer Imani Ruffins.
Milan loved beautiful clothes, as well as crawfish. And now that she is gone, a dream she spoke of having only two weeks ago is melded to her mother’s heart.
