Vigil for father of four shot to death in South Richmond

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) –Three people were shot at the intersection of 20th Street and Dinwiddie Avenue on March 31st. One of the victims, Kiarri Edwards, 34, was killed.

Police are still searching for Kiarri’s shooter. Witnesses say that the shooting did not appear to be random.

A block of Dinwiddie Avenue was closed off Sunday evening as friends and family in the community came together to remember Kiarri, who was often called “Kee-Kee” by his loved ones.

Kiarri was a father to four daughters. His family weeps along with the community who knew him so well.

“No one can cope because this happened to someone such as my brother, Kiarri Edwards. He did not deserve this at all… he was a father, he was a brother, he was a nephew..he was a son to many..and it hurts.”

Edwards was shot only days after his 34th birthday in front of his home.

      My point is that it is an endless cycle of poverty and violence in their community. When will those people take some responsibility for their lives?

    You are comparing apples to oranges. In 2013, there about 250 people murdered in mass shootings across the U.S., by contrast, in that same timeframe, there were 415 murders in Chicago alone (add in Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, Atlanta, etc to see the real situation), almost all. Of it black on black of it crime. But hey, let’s not let facts get in the way. Those people are twn worst enemy.

      black people kill and so do whites is the point? is there an excuse for when whites kill? why the streotypical comments when you see a black crime?

    Race is always a factor in Richmond…
    There seems to be always a large amount of African Americans both as perpetrators and vicitims.
    Why is this?
    Trying to understand it all….

    laughing at the people who run to the Internet to post their racist views. Why don’t you all tell the black people you are talking about to their face?
