Family and loved ones mourned the death of 26-year-old Angel Cuasant at his funeral Wednesday, more than a week after his fatal shooting at a bodega on Briggs Avenue.  
Cuasant was inside the store at around 11 a.m. on Dec. 18 when police say they found him on the floor with multiple gunshots in his stomach. He was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital where he was pronounced dead.  
Cuasant’s mother says she is devastated to lose the youngest of her six children, saying she still can’t wrap her head around this tragedy.  
“He was a good kid, he didn’t look for trouble…everybody is shocked,” said Ana Cuasant. “I want people to know he was a good kid, he wasn’t a gang banger like they’re thinking. He was none of that.” 
The family says that tomorrow they will say their final goodbyes at his burial.
