DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Family and friends of a shooting victim came together for a vigil Sunday evening.
Candles lit up the night at the H & H Car Service Center, on Riverview Ave. in Dayton. That's where Willie Boddie Jr., 28, was found dead in a car Friday.
A crowd gathered to pray and remember Boddie, Jr., who leaves behind a 3-year-old daughter.
"He tried to be the best father he could be for her and I'm sad for her," said his sister, Mashell McCleskey.
Police have only a vague description of the man who killed him. They said they don't believe it was a robbery.
"You just can't believe it, you hear about it but you never think it's gonna happen to you," said his mother, Patricia Boddie.
