A candlelight vigil for 19-year old Michael Hanley had to moved from it's original location because so many people showed up.

At least two-hundred family members and friends gathered at the Shell station on N. Broadway and New Circle, the spot where Hanley was shot and killed early Sunday morning.

They sang songs, cried and prayed until Lexington police told them they needed to gather somewhere else because the large crowd was making it difficut for people trying to get in and out of the gas station.

A suspect has still not been named in Hankey's murder. Police have released surveillance video from the night hoping someone will recognize the man. If you have any information, call crimestoppers, 877-970-2020.
