Shooting victim's family speaks out

- The neighborhood was lined with cars as family and friends gathered to remember LaQuanta Young.

The 30-year-old died of a gunshot wound following a shooting off Echodale Drive just after midnight Sunday morning.

“She had a positive attitude always keeping everybody jolly. She kept everybody laughing she didn’t get into no drama, she was just a good person, never got into any trouble.” Young’s cousin, Quintina Curry, said.

Family says Young wanted the violence to stop. Now, they too are calling for the violence in Charlotte to stop.

Family says they do not know the man Young was with on Sunday morning, who was also shot, but heard he is recovering in the hospital.
