Shooting Victims Remembered

Less than 24 hours later some people have gone back to the spot where violence erupted in downtown Greenville leaving two people dead.

With chalk in hand--the sidewalk in front of The Other Place in Greenville was transformed into a place for people to write messages and leave drawings -- remembering two lives cut too short.

Friends and employees took turns placing flowers and writing messages to honor both Landon Blackley and Andrew Kirby--both gunned down early Tuesday morning in what friends are calling a senseless act.

Kirby, a manager at Michelangelo's, and Blackley a rising senior at East Carolina University are honored on the sidewalk for now, but friends say their lives will be remembered forever.

A group on the social networking site Facebook has been created in the memory of Andrew Kirby.
