• Family remembers man gunned down outside of home

    By: Alexa Ashwell


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It has been one month since a Charlotte father was gunned down outside his home, and his family said the killers have yet to be found.
    Bias Easley, 27, was a corrections officer at a prison in Anson County.
    He was fatally shot outside his southwest Charlotte apartment on Farmhurst Drive June 5. 
    Charlotte Mecklenburg police named two suspects in his murder.
    Investigators have signed warrants charging Raphael and Trevor White.
    Police sources said that Easley was killed two days after he had a confrontation with one of the men at a convenience store close to his apartment.
    On Friday, family and friends of Easley used their annual Fourth of July cookout as a way to honor him and remind the public his case remains unsolved.
    "It's not fair," said Dawn McCormick, who was Easley's fiancée.  "It's not fair to me and it's not fair to our children."
    McCormick and Easley were supposed to married in July 14. 

    The family placed wanted flyers on balloons that they later released during the cookout. 

    "If anyone has any information please come forward," pleaded McCormick.
