A North Carolina family is mourning the loss of three members who were fatally shot outside the Landfall Center shopping complex on Saturday.

    “This is a really traumatic event and nobody wants to be remembered by a bad thing that happened,” a victim’s relative said. “I think we should focus on who they were as people.”

    “They’re people, you know; they had lives before this incident happened, and instead of looking at what happened, look at who they were, what they did, and how they loved anybody.”
