CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Sunday marks one year since 19-year-old Ariel Morgan was shot and killed at party in Moncks Corner.

The murder is still unsolved.

That's why Berkeley County has named June 7 "Princess Ariel Morgan Day," as police continue to search for answers.

The Berkeley County Sheriff's office has been following leads but an arrest in the case still has not been made.

Deputies believe an argument between two groups is what sparked gunfire that killed Morgan and injured five others.

More than 800 people were there, but so far no one has come forward.

Ariel was home, in the Lowcountry, from Francis Marion University when the shooting happened.

Ariel's mother and friends say it has been a tough year and they're asking people to come forward.

A scholarship fund has been set up in Ariel's name for a Stratford High School student who plans to study nursing.

A service will be held at Mount Moriah Baptist June 14 in Ariel's honor.

Ariel's family has been raising money for a reward since her death. Crime Stoppers announced earlier this year that it's at $8,740. 

There will be a fundraiser on June 15 at Buffalo Wild Wings, 4959 Centre Point Drive in North Charleston to raise money for the reward.

If you have any information, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
