Those friends gathered on the same corner, the intersection of Boulevard and  Memorial where the killing took place. They said prayers and lit candles as Justin Edwards father, Joel, appealed for something to be done to, " stop the killing." 

Speaking at the event, Pastor Steven Dial admonished the Greater Atlanta community saying that families know which young people are doing wrong.
