Prayer Vigil Honors Murder Victim
Members of the community are once again reclaiming a site of violence in the name of peace.
On Thursday, a crowd of nearly 200 community members gathered on the corner of West 19th and Chestnut streets, in honor of Justin Wiley, 22, whose life was violently cut short.
On the early morning of July 2, while in his car, the former Cathedral Prep football player was shot in the head and killed.
Police say that they've been making progress on the investigation, but as of tonight, no arrests have been made.
Wiley’s family and loved ones are still coming to grips with his death.
“We miss him,” said Wiley’s cousin Alyssa Wiley. “He was real respected in the community as a person."
A total of four young men have been murdered since the beginning of July.
