Two days after Devonta Demarcus English was killed in a drive-by shooting, his family members and friends gathered to remember him in song and prayer.

Police say English, 20, was hanging out with 21-year-old Jermarcus Morris on the corner of Burchett St. and Wilder St. just before 10:30 p.m. when someone in a gray sedan believed to be a Chevrolet Impala drove by and fired multiple shots at them.

English was struck in the upper torso and taken to LSU Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Morris was hit in the lower leg near the ankle. He is expected to survive.
