His mother would like answers. "I would love to know why," said Teri Green, "Why would you do this to him because he was not a confrontational person." 

Dominique Carter Bryant was a young mother, She is remembered as a caring person. She died February 9 after being shot ten times. She was outside of her apartment on 22nd and Magazine Streets.
