14-Year-Old Killed by Gang in Suburban Maryland

"He was very outgoing," friend Daniel Dolbow said. "He was an overall awesome person ... really fun to be around and he was a great friend."

Pastor Dennis Gray of the Riva Trace Baptist Church urged the crowd not to fight the violence with more violence, according to a report by the Baltimore Sun.

"I want to encourage you tonight to make a choice to give up the violence," Gray said. "Not retaliate, to forgive."

David Jones, the boy's father, emotionally echoed Gray's words.

"Stop the violence. This is obviously, just look at this -- no parent should go through what we are going through," he said.
