BED-STUY - Family and friends of two men killed in Tuesday's deadly fire in Bed-Stuy gathered to mourn and honor the men Sunday night.

The fire at 103 Hancock St. is being investigated as arson. 

One of the victims, Stanley Curtis Wilkie, leaves behind seven children. The other victim, Tyrone Corley, was a well-known and well liked DJ who mentored local children.

Vigil attendees said they cannot believe the two men are gone.

"We lost some great people in this house, I mean this is crazy," said neighbor Reginald Swiney.

Two other female tenants in the building were hurt in the fire, but are expected to be OK.
