Family and friends of Aisha Morales honored her memory with a "No More Guns" rally after she was gunned down this Tuesday.

Her mother says she hopes her death will not be in vain, and that people will think twice before using weapons. "If you would see my family together grieving, let it be an example for everybody to stop the violence," Natalie Ortiz said. Police have identified Catherine Morales, 26, as a suspect. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
