REIDSVILLE, N.C. – Veronica Broadnax of Reidsville was in her 30s. She had five sons. And so much life ahead of her.

Reidsville Police Lt. Wendell Neville says someone took that all away from her Saturday night.

Investigators say Broadnax was shot and killed during a gathering at a home on the 800 block of Lindsey Street.

"She was the mother of multiple children who are going to grow up without her and it's just sad," said Neville.

Neville says two other men were shot, but will recover from their injuries.

Investigators haven't released a motive. Witnesses say the mother wasn't the intended target of the shooting.

Neville says officers are working around the clock to find justice for Broadnax and her family. As of Sunday night, investigators say no arrests were made and no suspect information was available.
