During a candlelight vigil, her mother, Racquel Harrison, held Destiny’s child in her hands, calling for residents in the neighborhood to report any possible answers to her daughter’s death.

Harrison’s death came amid a deadly weekend in the city where another woman, Carmen Rodriguez, was shot inside of a convenience store in front of her children, police said.

Baltimore homicides have totaled 347 for the year, including a quadruple shooting on Dec. 30 that killed three and injured one.
