The Shaw University family is mourning the untimely death of one of its own. Wake County police say Keyona Verdell was killed after being struck by a vehicle Sunday morning. The 22-year-old was a cheerleader at Shaw.
Police said a group of people in a car were coming home from the Luc Lounge in Raleigh and got into some sort of altercation.
The 22-year-old woman got out even though her friends tried to stop her and keep her inside. She started walking on a dark part of New Hope Church Road at Green Road when a second vehicle hit and killed her, according to authorities.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Shaw community.
