SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police need the public’s help with information leading to suspects responsible for killing two women in a North Side neighborhood on May 29.

Police said 24-year-old Arbranique Johnson and 26-year-old Roniqua Simms were riding in a white Mazda with two other friends when a vehicle chased them into a neighborhood in the 3300 block of Fallen Leaf Lane.

Several suspects in the vehicle fired shots at the Mazda and killed Johnson and Simms, according to police.

Johnson’s aunt, Arnetrize Olivares, said her beloved niece was breaking the cycle of what she had been through in her life.

“She was 24 years old, bachelors degree, going for her masters in criminal justice, writing a book, fixing to open her own business,” Olivares said.

Olivares said Johnson, originally from San Antonio, was living in Houston but came back to town to mourn her uncle after his passing.

“She ended up murdered, and the next week they were buried on the same day,” Olivares said.

The victim’s aunt had this message for the person responsible for her niece’s death.

“I forgive you. I don’t understand why it happened. I don’t care why it happened. She should be here,” Olivares said.

Police say there are no known suspects at this time.

Crime Stoppers may pay up to $5,000 for information that leads to the suspect’s arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call 210-224-7867. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
