Houston high school sophomore Mareja Pratt was killed Monday afternoon after she was targeted for months on Instagram, claimed Pratt’s cousin Kira Walton.

“She kept picking on her on Instagram, sending people pictures saying she was a prostitute," explained Walton. "Messing with her . . . messing with her to the point my cousin used to cry about it.”

Eyewitnesses claimed the male gunman bounded from a vehicle and blasted at least 15 shots on Pratt, her 20-year-old sister Dekambrie Pratt and 32-year-old Anthony Thornabar, reported Houston TV station KHOU.

“Everyone started running, and I seen my sister fall,” recalled Dekambrie Pratt. “I keep picturing it. I can’t go to sleep. I can’t close my eyes 'cause I see her falling. . . . I want justice. I want justice for everyone in that car. I want justice.”

“I feel like my whole soul was ripped out,” lamented Walton. “This is hard on my family. So hard.”
