RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A somber gathering in Richmond last night at a Church Hill elementary school where a young man was gunned down just last week.
A candlelight vigil was held for 20-year-old Thomas Scott Jr.
The father of two was shot to death on the playground of Chimborazo Elementary School last week.
A suspect, 20-year-old Anthony Singleton, is in custody for the killing.
Family members tell us the two were life-long friends. Those who attended the service say the cycle of violence and memorial vigils is becoming too routine.
Authorities have told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that Scott and Singleton had been fighting over an item, but didn't reveal what that item was.
