BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Just over three months ago, Felipe Neri was shot and killed outside a home in east Bakersfield. His family still does not have justice.
Family, friends and kids from a high school football team gathered to remember Felipe Neri in a candlelight vigil on Aug. 3.
Arlene Gomez, Neri’s sister, told 17 News he was a good father and was involved in the community.
“… He [Neri] was a coach he went to all of his kids’ cheerleading games, football games … he cheered on all the kids,” Gomez said. Gomez says he was a father of seven.
Gomez says the family just wants peace, justice and a “fair day in court.”
Neri was shot and killed on Chelsea Street in east Bakersfield on May 3, according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.
