BALTIMORE (WMAR) – Police in Baltimore City are investigating the murder of a transgender woman.

“Kelly Young” was born “Rodney Little.”

Early Wednesday morning police were called to a home in the 2200 block of Barclay Street for a report of a shooting.

Rescue crews found Young inside of the home; she died at the hospital.

She grew up along Pennsylvania Avenue in West Baltimore.  On Thursday her family and friends came together to remember her life and call for the killer to be brought to justice.

“She was a fun person, that’s it.  She loved everybody, everybody loved her,” said her mother, Velda Moore.

Not too many of the boys from the neighborhood joined the “Baltimore Go-Getters marching band, but Rodney Little did.

“We marched up and down Baltimore streets and she showed out, yes she did,” said a friend, Tanya Eley.

Eventually Rodney Little began to identify herself as Kelly Young.

“The neighborhood embraced her — boys and girls, straight or gay she was embraced,” said her sister, Monique Mack.  “It wasn’t always a smooth road but I will say it was more smooth than not.”

“Everybody accepted her,” her mother added.  “That’s why everybody is here because everybody accepted her.  She kept it real.”
