HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Armed with candles, signs, balloons and love, more than 50 people marched down Bridge Road Friday night.

"We love Larry! We love Larry," the group shouted.

The mourners gathered at the intersection of Bridge Road and Mountain Park Circle and held an emotional candlelight vigil for a young life taken far too soon.

It was at that location on December 30th that 16-year-old Larry Flaccamio was shot and killed.

Huntsville Police continue to investigate this shooting, but no arrests have been made in this case.

"We will not rest until we find out who did this because no 16-year old deserved this," said friend Brandon Bramlett.

Flaccamio's family and friends want more than justice, his mother, Donna Howell said they want to see the violence stopped.

"We as adults, the adults in this neighborhood, we're partly responsible for my son's death because we stick our head in the sand and we turn our head because we're afraid."

The group will continue its call to action to honor the memory of the big-hearted young man, who was loved by so many.

"He was about loving people and you can see he brought a community together with love," said Howell.

Howell is offering a $1,000 reward for anyone who can provide information that leads to an arrest.
