BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. — A Cockeysville family is mourning the loss of a 21-year-old woman, who was found shot to death, laying in the middle of the road.

21-year-old Lyric Brown's sister said she loved her 2-year-old daughter and had an infectious smile. Now her family is upset beyond words, as Baltimore County police search for her killer.

Police got a call just after 1 a.m. Saturday, about a woman lying in the intersection of Sorely Road and Old Providence Way in Cockeysville, an area surrounded by apartment complexes.

They found Brown who had been shot once in the upper body. She died from her injuries.

Her sister said she made everyone laugh and was a great mother to her daughter.

She lived just across the street from where she was found.
