BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The mother of a 19-year-old girl shot to death during an apparent gunfight has raised thousands of dollars to add to the Crime Stoppers reward in hopes of flushing out her daughter's killer.
Ariel Morgan was shot to death at a June 7 party on Tish Lane in the Longridge community of Moncks Corner.
Her mother, Kendra Morgan-Stevens, raised more than $7,000 to add to the Crime Stoppers reward paid to anyone with information that leads to the arrest of the person who shot Morgan. That brings the total reward to more than $8,400.
According to a new flyer distributed by Crime Stoppers, violence broke out among some of the 800 attendees at the party, resulting in multiple shots being fired into the crowd.
Police say Morgan was not involved in the dispute.
