WASHINGTON HEIGHTS -

Mourners gathered Thursday at a wake for a 24-year-old man who was gunned down this weekend.

Police say Charles Reynoso was killed during an attempted robbery in Manhattan.

They say it happened early Saturday morning on 166th Street in Washington Heights. When emergency responders were called to the scene, they found Reynoso with a gunshot wound to the head.

An investigation into his final moments revealed that he was trying to hit one of the men who were attempting to rob him and his friends.

His family is thanking the NYPD for their continued effort in finding those responsible as they call for justice. Police say they are looking for at least five suspects at this point.

"Justice will be served for Charlie," says Olga Fernandez, Reynoso's mother. "And it will be because that's what we are all here for. I need justice for my son.
