Vigil held for man shot at DeKalb County gas station

- Dozens of people prayed by candlelight outside a gas station Sunday evening to honor the life of a man shot and killed Thanksgiving morning.

According to DeKalb County Police, Andrickus Harris, 32, was trying to put air in his tires when he got into an argument with another man at the Chevron station on Bouldercrest Road.

Minutes later, that man waited for Harris to come inside the convenience store and then opened fire.

"I just can't believe it.  I just really can't believe.  It's just like a nightmare that my son gone just like that over an argument," said Freddie Harris, the victim's father.  

Family and friends returned to the scene of the crime Sunday to share memories of Harris.  

"He was loved by a lot of people and tonight this just shows that everybody's concerned about him, about the family and really wanted to bring closure," said Harris's uncle, Rev. Larry Hill.  
The crowd also released balloons in Harris's honor and prayed for whoever was responsible for his death to come forward.

"So, don't do your family like you done did your family.  We all hurting.  Don't make your family hurt like we hurt," said Harris's father.  

Anyone with information about the shooting should call DeKalb County Police.
