Silent march to be held one year after deadly Beatties Ford Road shooting

CHARLOTTE — Tuesday marks one year since since four people were killed and five others were hurt during a Juneteenth block party on Beatties Ford Road.

The community is planning on holding a silent march Tuesday at 7 p.m. to honor the “Beatties Ford 4.”

The march will start at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church. Organizers said they will have a prayer and a moment of silence before the march.

The shooting happened on June 22, 2020. Authorities said several shooters were involved and fired at least 181 rounds into the crowd of around 400 people.

In a cellphone video sent to Channel 9 from the night of the shooting, cars could be seen doing doughnuts and fireworks were being shot off.

At one point, someone was hit by a car and the video shows an ambulance arriving. Soon after, you can hear several gunshots, people running away chaotically and hiding in their cars.

Nine people were shot. Four of them died, and another person was killed after being hit by a car trying to escape the gunfire.

One year later, no arrests have been made.

Channel 9′s Tina Terry spoke with a father of one of the victims, who said he has not given up on the possibility of an arrest.

Kenneth Stevenson’s son, Dariyon Stevenson, was killed at the block party.

Stevenson said community support is needed to ensure there is an arrest in this case.
