A 19-year-old woman was killed in a fatal shooting in Lawrence on Wednesday evening, according to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.
Police responded to a report of shots fired at 300 Howard St. around 9:20 p.m., the DA’s office said in a news release. There they found Angie Aristy suffering from gunshot wounds.
Aristy was taken to Lawrence General Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, the release said. State and local police are investigating.
There were no arrests, WBZ-TV reported. No further information about the shooting was released.
A GoFundMe was founded to help Aristy’s family pay for funeral expenses.
“She loved, she was strong, she preached and she made others laugh. Most importantly, she cared about others first,” Aristy’s family wrote on the GoFundMe page.
The community organization Lawrence Against Violence is is holding a vigil for Aristy on Friday at 8 p.m. in Lawrence. A Facebook post from a family member points out that Aristy left behind family and a friend.
