Quincy Bowens was ushering Zyandrea into her South Roxboro St. apartment in Durham when the drive-by shooting took his life.  Kamesha Alston (right), 9, was the oldest of four cousins who witnessed the killing. Rodney Carolina recalls Bowens' last moments, "He was looking up at me with this expression in his eyes, like 'Help me. Help me.'  It was the first time in my life that I've felt helpless. I felt like losing it," said Carolina. "I'm asking God to help me lift up my kids, to make me strong for them," he said.  "I have faith that God will answer their questions. He will make a way for us."   Staff photo by Ted Richardson/News & Observer...
