Family and friends are speaking out and remembering a 19-year-old who was shot and killed by a police officer.

"Just to be shot four times that's excessive. That wasn't right. He could have killed the other three people that were in the car," said the victim's friend, Lynsy Hall.

It began around 2 a.m. Saturday when Deputy Tyler Brockman of Boone County was investigating a field party on River Road.

Authorities say he got out of his cruiser and was struck by a car leaving the party, causing him to land on the hood of the car. Brockman then reportedly fired four rounds into the windshield, hitting the driver.

The driver was 19-year-old Samantha Ramsey, a 2013 graduate of Holmes High School. She was transported to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Ramsey's grieving mother, along with 150 other friends and family members, gathered on Sunday for a candlelight vigil at the location of the shooting.
