    Prince George's County officials unveiled a mural Thursday to honor a beloved teacher who was murdered along with her young daughter following a child support dispute. 

    NeShante Davis, 26, was putting her 2-year-old daughter, Chloe Davis-Green, into a car seat on Feb. 2 when Chloe's father, Daron Boswell-Johnson, approached them in the parking lot of their Fort Washington home.

    Police say Boswell-Johnson demanded Davis drop an ongoing child support order and then shot the mother and daughter multiple times. 

    He later admitted to carrying out the shooting. 

    On Thursday, school officials and Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobooks unveiled a mural honoring Davis at Bradbury Heights Elementary School in Capitol Heights. 

    "We're here today because something was taken from us in an act of violence," Alsobooks said. "I want it to be clear to everyone here today that this is something we will fight against." 

    Davis worked for years at the school as a teacher's aide. She was in the middle of her first year teaching second grade at the time of her death.
