The family of a Newnan teenager gunned down in a drive by shooting is desperately searching for answers in their daughter’s killing.
Newnan Police are looking for the gunman responsible for firing multiple rounds into a home on Savannah Street on Dec. 30 around 9 p.m.
“It is senseless,” said the teen’s grandmother, Minister Sharon Wilkes, "There's no reason. Aubria was not doing anything wrong. She was killed by someone else doing something wrong.”
The teen’s mother, Camille Smith, described Aubria as a vibrant light in her life. Foster had dreams of becoming a dentist and had just signed up to go back to college.
“They took her chance of going down the aisle, having kids, getting married,” said Smith. “She was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
Newnan Police say someone outside this home fired multiple shots into the living room – striking and killing the teen.
“It was a drive-by shooting, and she was hit in the back and the aorta and they were unable to save her,” said Smith.
Now, the hunt is on for her killer.
“There is no closure because we don’t know if we are standing in the grocery store next to them,” said Smith. “We don’t know who it is. They were cowards and did this at night. They could’ve killed everybody in there.”
Aubria Foster’s family is praying someone will have the tip that police need to get this dangerous killer off the streets.
“It's time to step up and own what you did,” said Smith.
The teen's family says, until that person steps forward, they can't begin to heal the incredible hole in their hearts.

“We will never be at peace,” said Smith. “She was my child, so I can never be at peace until they pay for what they did.”
“She was loved by many, and by God, she will definitely be missed from the time she left this earth,” said Wilkes.
There is now a $5,000 reward from Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS for any information leading to an arrest.
