A candlelight vigil was held Friday night for a mother shot to death in Brooklyn.

Nicoleia Taylor's family and neighbors came together to pray for her.

Police say Taylor was shot by a stray bullet Tuesday morning as she was walking outside the Lafayette Gardens housing project.

The 24-year-old nurse was about to celebrate a birthday.

Her brothers said she was always optimistic.

"She was a hard-working woman. Wherever she went, she always brought the laughs, she always brought the fun, the smiles on people's faces," said one. "She never had nothing negative. She was a good woman. She ain't deserve this at all."

Police say Corey Brown was the shooter.

He is still at large.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
