The bond between twins is known for being incredibly strong. A set of Missouri twins had their bond severed after a horrifying tragedy took place at school.

One of the sisters An’Janique Wright, 15,  was shot and killed outside a high school basketball game. Her sister Angelique watched in horror as the events unfolded before her.

The grief-stricken teen recounted her twin sister’s final moments on Tuesday night at the Central Academy of Excellence in Kansas City. She told reporters:

“I watched her die. I watched my twin sister die. She just looked at me, her eyes started going into the back of her head.”

Wright said her sister An’Janique knew she was in danger. She apparently warned her as they left a school basketball game.

Earlier that evening, her twin had been involved in an argument with a woman. The woman was kicked out of the game.

However, after the woman was escorted off site, she returned with another woman. Police revealed she then waited outside for An’Janique.

“When they put us out, [An’Janique] said they got something,” the twin said. “She warned everybody. Then a minute later, gunshots.”

Angelique watched helplessly as the bullet struck her sister in the chest. The teen was killed immediately.

“I didn’t think it was true,” Wright said. “I didn’t think I was seeing my sister dying.”

Two women were arrested in connection with the fatal shooting. However, no charges have been filed yet. A GoFundMe page was created to raise money for An'Janique's funeral.

“We had plans,” Wright said. “We planned our whole future together. I don’t think she wanted it to end like this.”

The terrifying story comes just months after a man in New Mexico was arrested for kidnapping children and training them for school shootings. Both stories raise questions pertaining to school safety regulations.
