"This is an isolated incident and we have nothing further for release," police said in an email last week.

Friends and family said Semion recently transferred to Evans High School. Antavia Thomas described her as her best friend.

"She was a caring person you can listen to, you can talk to. She laughed all day long. She's a sister I never had. Words can't really explain our bond. I just want her back because it hurts that she's gone," Thomas said.

A GoFundMe to help the family pay funeral expenses has been set up
