Police have asked the public for help in finding those responsible for the shooting.

“If you were there that night and you didn’t see the shooting, you might have seen something important to this case,” Justus said.

McClain, 23, was remembered as a "very nurturing person" with "a heart of gold."

Justus, who was joined by McClain’s family, said the 23-year-old was remembered for having “a heart of gold.”

McClain’s mother, Brenda Gilliam-Turner, said that her daughter’s death was “unreal to us.”

“She was a very nurturing person, and this is the one time she actually left the house, and she didn’t make it home,” Gilliam-Turner said. “Destiny wasn’t the type to be the one on the streets. She was usually at home, and this was her trying to be a friend to somebody, and it cost her her life.”

Justus said that even if someone at the scene that night didn’t see the actual shooting, they may have seen something important and urged them to come forward and speak with police.
