Vigil to be held for victim of shooting near VSU

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Police are still looking for a Virginia State University student accused of a deadly shooting near campus.

Family and friends will pay their respects to 20 year-old Tyrail Hughes with a vigil Monday night.

Hughes leaves behind a 1 year-old son.

His family says he was cleaning up his act, but last Tuesday, Hughes was killed and another man was injured outside an off campus Credit Union.

Two groups of men were arguing, then shots were fired.

Hughes' mother is urging the killer to come forward.

There's already been one arrest, but police are still looking for 19 year-old Ryan Christopher Simms.

Simms faces several charges, including murder.

The shooting was caught on a campus surveillance camera.

Police say the men who were with Hughes the day of the shooting, are not cooperating.

The vigil for Tyrail Hughes is Monday at 6:00 p.m., near the VSU campus.

His funeral will be Tuesday at Trinity Missionary Baptist Church.

That starts at 2:00 p.m. on Halifax Street in Petersburg.

Police say if you see the accused shooter, Ryan Christopher Simms, do not approach him.

They say he may be dangerous and you should call 911.
