LINDEN - Mourners gathered today to remember the young woman killed during an armed robbery in Linden weeks after she graduated from high school.

Services for Amber Wilson took place this morning at the First Baptist Church in Linden.

Authorities said the 18-year-old was walking from a Dunkin' Donuts with a friend when she was approached, shot and robbed on July 9.

Investigators say Wilson may have known her assailant because authorities said words were exchanged before the shooting. No arrests have been made.
