MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- The family of a man killed in Muskegon last week held a vigil Tuesday night in his memory. But more than that, it was a vigil calling for an end to violence.

Alex Brown, 27, died after a shooting in the 300 block of Monroe in Muskegon last week. A bystander, Carmesha Rogers, also 27, was also shot in the head and remains in critical condition.

Brown's family and friends marched with lit candles to his nearby home.

They say their focus is on how Brown lived -- but they're still affected by how he died.

"Right now, there are many things I could say but I'm just so hurt," says Anita Brown, the victim's mother.  "This is just a hard time for me."

"It's sad and it hurts that he left, how he was taken away from me and his mom," says the victim's girlfriend, Shamisha Webster.  "He wasn't supposed to leave like that."

Investigators have arrested six people in connection with the shooting, but they still have questions about who may have committed the murder.

Brown's family is asking anyone with information on the shooting to call Muskegon Police, or Silent Observer at (231) 72-CRIME.
