On Tuesday, friends and family gathered outside Charleston City Hall to mourn the loss of the local Black Lives Matter leader, reports CBS affiliate WCSC. Police are investigating the shooting, which has been ruled a homicide, according to Charleston's Live5 News. He had been shot in the leg, and the police report said officers followed a trail of blood that led them back to a bullet fragment a few blocks away from where Moye was found. "He was transported to a hospital and subsequently died of his wounds. We need more young people to be as bold and as fearless as he seemed to be". The New Orleans Police Department's public affairs division did not immediately respond to Mic's request for additional information Wednesday morning.
