Tuesday night, the family, neighbors and friends of Jason Patrick Paylor Jr. held a candlelight vigil on the spot where he died as a show of love and support—and to seek justice and answers for the death of the 17-year-old.
Paylor, a Wilkinsburg High School junior known as "JayP", was gunned down in front of his home during broad daylight on a Saturday afternoon, Oct. 2, 2010. The honor student had hoped to be an artist.
A poster on the wall in the office of District Judge Kim M. Hoots in Wilkinsburg showed a photo of Paylor. Beside it was taped a written, photocopied notice from one of his parents, noting that he died of four gunshot wounds and asking people to wear white T-shirts to the vigil.
