WCBD-TV: News, Weather, and Sports for Charleston, SC

From our News Partners at WCBD-TV:

 It's been one month since a block party in Berkeley County turned tragic as someone fired into a large crowd injuring five people and killing 19-year-old Ariel Morgan.

Monday, across the nation, friends and family gathered to remember Morgan's life. They released purple balloons around the nation in places including including Goose Creek, Michigan, Ohio, Maryland, Kentucky and Nebraska.

Friends say they are praying for peace and hoping for justice.

"Justice is just finding out who did it. I don't ever wish death or anything on anyone. I just wish that whoever did this can't sleep at night. They can't eat or do anything because their mind won't let them rest. Justice for me is just them getting what they deserve," Melissa Staley said.
