Friends and family joined together Tuesday night to remember a father killed in Brownsville last month.
Robert Black, 28, was fatally shot on Rockaway Avenue on Jan. 25.
His relatives say he was heading home from a party. They tell News 12 he was always making others laugh and just became a father for the second time.
"We have a lot of family that loves him and a lot of people in the community that cared about him," says Black's aunt, Keba. "We're grateful for anybody that is coming out to pay their respects."
Police tell News 12 they are still searching for Black's killer.
