DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Family and friends hold each other close as they came together to remember Brad Thompson Saturday at 613 Hulbert Street.
"This community is going to miss a fun guy, a serious guy. He took care of people around here. He was just an all-around guy that you just had to fall in love with," says Scott Duty.
The 30-year-old was found shot to death inside this home on New Years Day.
Thompson leaves behind a 7-year-old daughter.
"He was worried about his daughter. He wanted to go into the service and get his daughter and take care of her the right way," comments Duty.
Dozens of loved ones wrote messages on a posterboard and hung orange ribbons on the front door to celebrate his life.
"The Lord's going to have a good friend with him," explains Bruce Hewer.
Neighbors tell 2 News they heard arguing right before gunshots rang out early New Years Day.
No charges have been filed in Thompson's homicide.
Dayton Police say this man 18-year-old Tyler Mentel is a person of interest. Right now, he's in the Montgomery County Jail on a probation violation.
Police tell us they've also questioned one other person and that the castle doctrine may come into play in this case which states that a person can use deadly force to defend their home.
As candles burn in Thompson's memory, his family has a message for whoever killed him.
"I hope that they know that their life isn't going to be real good for doing something so bad to somebody so good. Amen Brad," says Hewer.
