"It's still unbelievable right now. It definitely felt like you lost a big part of yourself," said Raheem's aunt Kimberly Williams.

Family members describe Raheem Williams as outgoing, smart and loved by his family.

"He’s the oldest grandchild, so we all had a hand in raising him."

Police say on September 5th Williams was standing on Lyell near Saratoga when someone road by on a bike and shot him. The 22-year-old was hit multiple times and died a short time later at the Hospital.


Police have since identified and charged the shooter, Omari McGuire. McGuire, 21, was arraigned Wednesday morning.

"I want to see his face. I want to hear what he has to say," said Williams.

The family did not have the chance to see McGuire’s face at his arraignment Wednesday morning as they weren’t aware of the arrest at the time. They plan to be in court for his next court date.

"We did feel kind of surprised and left out, but that's been neither here nor there. We are aware going forward," said Williams.

Raheem's aunt says this is not the first violent death the family has suffered. Three years ago, another cousin, Kentrel Boone, was shot on Wren Street.

"Our family is trying to do what we can to heal," said Williams.

Kimberly calls out those who are responsible for street violence.

"I don’t believe they know what they are doing. They might think they do but at the end of the day, someone is losing their loved one or someone is visiting their loved one in jail. Is it really worth it?" asked Williams.

A loved one lost.

"It felt like you were losing your son," said Williams.
