Vigil held for man stabbed at Mt. Pleasant Walmart

Nearly a week after a man was stabbed to death at a Mt.Pleasant Walmart, his family is still searching for answers.

"He was just a great fella," Geneva Gatherings, David Moultrie's aunt, said.

Gatherings and about 100 others gathered to honor Moultrie outside of the Oakland Market Walmart where he worked and died.

"He was a kind, hardworking and respectful young man," Michael Dockery, Moultrie's coworker, said.

Police said it was outside the Walmart where 20-year-old Moultrie was stabbed several times by 18-year-old Darius Green after the two got into an argument on September 28th.

His family said they still don't know what led to the argument, and ultimately, the violence. They said living with that uncertainty is difficult.

"It's very hard. I don't know what happened...just don't know. And he's not here to tell what's going on," Gatherings said.

The vigil was led by members of the group Big Uncle, which is a new non-profit in Mt. Pleasant geared toward mentoring young people and ending violence.

"For all my young people, take this as a message. To move forward, you must think before you react. Even in the midst if being angry, think before you react," Anthony Cummings, founder of Big Uncle, said.

Moultrie's family members said they hope all the young people in the crowd take this advice before more lives are destroyed.
