BAYCHESTER - The Baychester community gathered tonight for a vigil for a local boy who was killed in Haffen Park last week.

The vigil was held at the Haffen Park tennis courts, where loved ones say 14-year-old Kemar Brooks spent many hours playing tennis. At the vigil, Brooks' friends shared their fondest memories of him.

Brooks was shot in the head last week, and police say they are still on the hunt for the person who fired the fatal shot. The teen's family says the funeral will be held this Saturday.
