Vigil honors death of Jeremy Lowery

Jeremy Lowery's Vigil Jeremy Lowery's Vigil

Friends and family gathered around to remember Jeremy Lowery at a Vigil on Sunday.

Lowery was killed on Sept. 29 by 16-year-old Treyland “Trey" Hunter in Biloxi. Investigators said Hunter admitted to getting a rifle and shooting him in the face while his mother and Lowery were fighting outside. Hunter was taken to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center that night and his bond was set at $100,000.

At the vigil, family and friends light candles, prayed, cried and paid their respects.

“I was pretty shocked, I couldn’t believe it,” said his friend Nicole Mcnair. “I didn’t understand because he was a loving person,  he’d make you laugh.”

Suzanne MaGee with the Gulf Coast Women’s Center for Nonviolence has been working with the family since December during their time of grief.

“It’s assuring them that all the feelings they are feeling are very normal because you sometimes feel like you are going crazy when it's happened to you,” said MaGee.
