Family holds vigil for lost loved one

Posted: Updated:

(11/17/12) - Another Flint family is grieving the loss of a loved one. Kenyatta Johnson was killed Tuesday.

Saturday night, his family and friends gathered for a candlelight vigil.

It was held near Warren and Chippewa. That's the same place the 23-year-old was shot and killed.

Johnson's uncle says the violence has to stop. "What are we getting out of this? What are we accomplishing? Nothing but making the funeral homes rich. That is it. We are losing our families, losing our kids, no one ever care no more," said Nigel Johnson.

Johnson is the 62nd person that has been killed in Flint this year.
