A 17-year-old student died yesterday after being shot in the face at a party.
Police say Travis Montez Moore of Charlotte was shot when someone at the party fired a handgun while the kids were dancing.
Family members say Moore was set to be the first man in his family in many years to graduate from high school. They say he had a three-point-oh grade point average and dreamed of going to U-N-C Chapel Hill to become a scientist or doctor.
Police say they are following tips but haven't arrested anyone yet.
