Shaw cheerleader dies after being hit by vehicle

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.

From WRAL:

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.
