The family of the victim in a fatal Sunset shooting will be holding a vigil.

Kendrick Lawrence was killed Monday afternoon following a shooting in the 100 block of West Martin Luther King Drive.

Police arrested 36-year-old Walter Savoie of Sunset in connection with that shooting.

The family will host a candlelight vigil and balloon release in remembrance of Lawrence’s life.

That vigil will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 29, 2019, in the 200 block of Sunset Loop.

On Tuesday, Lawrence’s family spoke to KATC, forgiving Savoie for killing their loved one.

They say Kendrick escaped the streets and turned his life around after becoming a husband and father. Read more from the family here.
