DUNCANVILLE — More than 500 friends and family members gathered outside Duncanville High School on Sunday night to mourn the loss of "a beautiful angel."

Tasmia Allen, 17, was killed last week along with her mother, Toya Smith.

Smith's son, Storm, 14, was also critically wounded when police say Erbie Bowser went on a shooting rampage.

Allen's friends and family vowed to never forget the dancer and fun-loving girl who would have been a senior this year at Duncanville High.

"I know it's hard. It's hard, but we really need prayers," said close friend Melle Brown.

Two other women in DeSoto were also allegedly killed by Bowser in the shooting spree which stretched from late Wednesday into early Thursday morning last week.

The suspect was moved from a Dallas hospital to a jail cell over the weekend. Bowser faces multiple murder and attempted murder charges.

A fund set up under Storm's name has been set up at Wells Fargo bank branches to help with his medical costs.
