ELIZABETH - Less than two weeks after their loved one was gunned down, one Elizabeth family is pouring their pain into a mission.

Police say 20- year-old Earl-Quan Moore was shot and killed near Third and Pine streets.

Moore's grieving family says their pain also comes with the knowledge that his death certainly won't be the last in Elizabeth.

His family, along with demonstrators, held signs Saturday saying 'black lives matter,' calling for an end to the violence claiming the lives of too many in the community.

Police are still searching for the suspect responsible for Moore's death.
