Police are still looking for the person or people responsible for not only killing him but shooting two other people.

It happened at Memorial Park, as a crowd gathered for a vigil to honor a woman who died earlier this week.

Police the shooter or shooters drove by and fired into the crowd that was gathered for a vigil.

11 News spoke to a woman who says that was her husband was the one killed.

"I was there to pay my respects and my husband was there to support me. He didn't even know her or anybody else," Sirena Collins said. "I had broken off from him and was in the middle of the crowd when I heard gunshots ring out and I ran towards the car with my daughter."

Sirena's husband, Robert, later died at the hospital. Police don't have anyone in custody or a suspect description. Collins says it doesn't feel real.

"Somebody took my husband's life for no reason. They took my kid's father away from them."

She adds Robert was not only a good dad and husband but a good person, who didn't deserve this.

"He was a provider, he was a lover and he and he was kind and caring and loving and loved by everybody he came across."

Now, as Collins begins her life without her husband, she and police hope someone, somewhere, comes forward.

"If anybody knows anything like…imagine if it was your husband, your son, your brother, your father," she said. "I have two children who have just lost a dad end and they will never get that back. And I have to live the rest of my life knowing that my husband was taken for nothing."
