Omaha, Ne--More than 200 people came out to support the family and mother of Kevin McIntyre. The twin was shot down over the weekend.
Neighbors held a candlelight vigil at 30th and S Wednesday night.
"He was always smiling he was always a happy person. He was a family person," Tanisha Baxter, Kevin's cousin said.
Sunday night, Kevin and his twin brother Branden were shot near 27th and Spencer in North O. Kevin died. County attorney Don Kliene isn't releasing details but says the shooting appears to be justified. Friends can't understand how.
"I don't feel like there's really any justification for that especially being that Kevin didn't have a gun on him. It's like he didn't have a gun on him and this dude shot him," Justin Blackson, an organizer of the vigil said.
As police patrolled, Lisa, the 28 year-olds mother, begged the crowd for no retaliation for her son's shooting.
"It's just not worth it I still got another Twin out there. Only thing I want is justice. Like I said I forgive whoever it was," she told the crowd.
