Family and friends are mourning the loss of a young man who died in Parkersburg Thursday night.
Parkersburg Police say 20-year-old Chad Friend was shot Thursday evening with a 12-gauge shot gun, when Friend and a family member got into a dispute with a neighbor.
Many have spent the day sharing memories of Friend, who is described as fun, intelligent and a good christian man.
"He was just about as close to perfect as you can get for a kid. He worked hard and everybody liked him," Carol Friend, Chad's mother, said.
"We were just so proud of what God was doing in Chad and through Chad," Kathryn Hutzler, a member of Liberty Street Church of God, said.
No arrests have been made in the shooting at this time.
The case remains under investigation as police continue conducting interviews and evaluating evidence.
Friend was a member of Liberty Street Church of God, which has set up a memorial fund to help pay for funeral expenses.
Anyone wanting to donate can write a check to the Chad Friend Memorial Fund.
Checks can be mailed or dropped off at the church or United Bank.
