Elkhart woman making decals to benefit family of murder victim


Police say Sixteen-year-old Braxton Barhams was shot and killed Saturday in Elkhart.

His  death has inspired community members to do something.

Michelle Johnsen is making two decals, one will be a memorial to Barhams' life and the other will say "Stop The Violence."

Profits from sales will benefit Barhams' family.

She says she has a 14-year old daughter, so this tragedy hits close to home.

"I feel like I was given this opportunity to run this business which started three years ago, that I need to do it for the greater good and this is what I'm meant to do," says Michelle Johnsen who owns Competition Graphics.

Johnsen says orders for the decals are already flooding in. You can order one at https://www.facebook.com/CompetitionGraphics.
