Family and friends held a candlelight vigil over the weekend in memory of a Bakersfield man killed in an officer-involved shooting New Year's Day.
"This man had the biggest heart. If you asked for a quarter, he'd give you 10 bucks. There was no limit what he would give to you and never ask for anything in return," said Evelin Martinez. Martinez was one of many who attended the vigil Saturday night for Abel Gurrola.
Last Tuesday, Gurrola's brother says he and Abel fired shots near an open field to celebrate the New Year. When police arrived, they say Abel was holding a rifle and refused to put it down and took off running. That's when officers shot him and he later died.
Family members say they've donated Gurrola's organs.
