The death of a loved one is never easy to get over, but it is especially hard to grieve when they have been murdered. That feeling is unfortunately what Toya Wright is currently dealing with as she tries to make sense of the devastating murders of her two brothers this past July. Now, she opens up to PEOPLE magazine for an exclusive regarding the tragic turn of events.

In an exclusive with PEOPLE magazine, Wright gives her first in-depth interview since the murders took place, which also provides news about the current status of the case.

Some of the excerpts from the interview are below:

“I got a call from my sister-in-law and she was like, ‘Your brothers just got shot,’” recalls Wright, who was hosting a party in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, at the time of the call. “The music was loud and I’m [thinking], this can’t be real.” Wright’s brothers Ryan “Rudy” Johnson, 24, and Joshua “Fish” Johnson, 31, were discovered shot to death inside a car in New Orleans’ seventh ward on July 31, according to police.

“It was the worst news ever,” she says. “Murders happen every day and this is another dark night in New Orleans. You hear about stories like this all the time, but it doesn’t really hit you until you get that call. It hits so close to home.”

“We have not publicly identified a suspect or suspects in the case at this time,” police spokesman Tyler Gamble tells PEOPLE. “The investigation is ongoing.”

Toya Wright’s full interview with PEOPLE magazine will hit newsstands on Friday.
