GASTONIA, NC (WBTV)- Investigators in Gastonia are still searching for a man who shot and killed a 17-year-old Brandon McCall, Saturday night.
"It's been hard. Losing a great friend like that, it's been hard on everybody. I couldn't imagine what his family is feeling like," said McCall's classmate Noah Sale.
Sale is a senior at Hunter Huss High and is still in disbelief that his longtime friend, classmate and soccer teammate is dead.
Gastonia Police say McCall was shot around 6 pm on Saturday in the 1800 block of West Third Avenue.
Investigators say McCall then crashed his Honda Civic in the 1700 block of West Garrison Blvd and died on the scene.
"To take a person's life, you have to be some type of person. To sit there, pull a gun and shoot, it's just crazy," said Sale.
Friends and students at Hunter Huss High School remembered their friend, who they called B-Mac, by decorating his on-campus parking spot, Sunday.
