Young mother remembered at Sunday night vigil

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Friends and family gathered in Harrisburg Sunday night to remember a young mother. Police said she was the victim of domestic violence, killed last week by her ex-boyfriend.

The mourners gathered outside a downtown apartment to remember Adreanna Evans. The 21-year-old left behind a 4-month-old baby.

Police said Evans was shot by her ex-boyfriend early Wednesday morning inside an apartment at 6th and Pear Streets.

Sunday, Evans' sister had a message for other victims of domestic abuse.

"My prayers go out to every family like mine that is affected by domestic violence," Angie Evans said. "And I hope that these young girls learn from my sister and leave before it is too late for them."

Lagenza Junious, 36, is charged with homicide and attempted homicide in the case. Police said he also shot Adreanna Evans' 19-year-old boyfriend. He is still in the hospital in critical condition.
