Friends and neighbors gathered Monday night to memorialize the 16-year-old who was fatally shot in the Cayce Homes on Sunday evening. The vigil was the latest in a year of deadly shootings in the East Nashville public housing complex.
Deberianah Begley was on her porch when the shooting started. When she ran for cover, she was shot and killed by a stray bullet.
A close friend of the victim's family, Angela Scales, says she is heartbroken over the fact that Begley, an innocent bystander, was killed.
