LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Loved ones gather to remember those lost to gun violence at the locations where the crimes were committed. Friends and relatives of the deceased formed healing circles in which prayers, tears, and tears were shared. The vigils were held separately. Attendees seeking justice for brutal murders, is what they had in common.

Christopher Malone, 22, was a family-oriented man, who had a passion for music. On March 1, his body was found in a dumpster in the 4200 block of Allmond Avenue. He had been shot 14 times. His mother would like answers. "I would love to know why," said Teri Green, "Why would you do this to him because he was not a confrontational person." 

Dominique Carter Bryant was a young mother, She is remembered as a caring person. She died February 9 after being shot ten times. She was outside of her apartment on 22nd and Magazine Streets. Her mother said the killing was overkill. "It's really unnecessary, the severity that they shot my daughter was really uncalled for," said Belinda Carter, "When you go hunting out there you don't even kill a deer that much." 

There are no suspects in either case. Anyone with information is asked to call the Anonymous Tip Line at (502) 574-LMPD.
