— Friends of a Raleigh teen shot and killed last weekend gathered Tuesday to mourn his death.

Adarius Monquell Fowler was shot near the intersection of North Tarboro Road and Oakwood Avenue shortly before 9 p.m. Friday. He was taken to WakeMed, where he died.

Fowler's friends joined students from nearby St. Augustine's College Tuesday at the intersection where he was shot to remember his life and to push for safe streets.

“Let us show that we are a village,” said Fowler’s stepmother, Fiaunna Shivers. “We may not be from the same neighborhood, but we are neighbors. Do not let his death be in vain. It’s not time for more talking; it’s time for action.”

Adarius, 16, previously attended Athens Drive High School. He was enrolled for classes at Broughton and would have started school there Dec. 1, his aunt said.

Police haven't released details about any suspects or a motive in the shooting.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call the Raleigh Police Department’s Detective Division at 919-996-3555 or Crime Stoppers at 919-226-2746.
