Funeral arrangements have been set for the pregnant 19-year-old shot to death in East Knoxville.

Marcia Crider died Wednesday after police say a man opened fire on her and her mother in a car outside of a home on Porter Avenue.

Family and friends will remember her Saturday at 7:00 at Rose Mortuary on Broadway.

Police are still looking for Brandon Scott Donaldson, who they believe is responsible. When authorities have him in custody, they plan to charge him with second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.

The District Attorney's Office says they can add a felony murder charge for the unborn child. A new law enacted in July allows them to consider the fetus as a person.

This is the second time in a year that Crider's family has lost a loved on to gun violence. Crider's brother, William Lamont Jones, was shot and killed near their home on Washington Avenue in June.

Police say they are confident people in the community know where Donaldson is hiding. He should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on his location is asked to call 911 immediately.
