GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) — The funeral for 19-year-old Ariel Morgan is planned for Saturday, but her friends want to remember her, before then with food and laughter.

The Francis Marion University sophomore was one of several people shot at a block party in Moncks Corner last weekend. She was the only one to lose her life.

Organizers of the memorial gathering said since the night Morgan passed away, her friends have been active on social media to try and organize a way to support the family and others who are grieving.

A memorial gathering Wednesday night at Eubanks Park in Goose Creek was the answer they developed. Friends said during the fellowship they are going to gather and say a few words about Morgan before closing in prayer.

“All we can do is pray and just let it sink in as much and try our best to get through it. I know it’s a hard time but, she would want us to move on err, want us to keep going, in a sense,” said a childhood friend and organizer Chris Davis.

Friends of the Stratford graduate said they also want to help find the people responsible for her death. They’re asking that anyone with information call the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office or Crimestoppers.

Berkeley County deputies are still investigating Morgan's shooting death. No arrests have been made.

On Tuesday morning, a memorial fund was set up in Morgan’s name at Bayre Heritage Federal Credit Union in Goose Creek.
