Police found 17-year-old Levy Daniel lying in the street with a gunshot wound to the lower back.

Police say Daniel was taken to the Medical Center and pronounced dead just after midnight Saturday.

News Leader 9 spoke with Daniel's mother Valarie Daniel. "He was a good person, everyone new and loved him very much," said Levy Daniel's mother.
