NAPLES, Fla.- Hundreds of people joined at Max Hasse Jr. Community Park in Naples, to remember the life of Dylan Nuno.
Nuno, who would have celebrated his 17th birthday this week, was stabbed to death at his bus stop on Monday. Tonight, family and friends are holding a candlelight vigil in his memory.
It was a very emotional scene, as hundreds of loved ones joined to remember the short, but sweet life of Dylan Nuno. Hundreds of people trickled in for a candlelight vigil to remember the Palmetto Ridge High School student.
Nuno was stabbed to death during an altercation with another student, 14-year old Jorge Saavedra, on Monday. Saavedra is accused of stabbing Nuno to death during a fight at their bus stop. He remains in juvenile detention, until his arraignment on February 14th. But tonight, the focus is remembering the good times...and friends of Dylan say there are plenty of memories to go around. Friends and family wore t-shirts commemorating Dylan's life. A crowd for the candlelight vigil began forming around 8 o'clock. Those in attendance formed a circle, sharing many laughs and also shedding many tears in memory of a dear friend.
"I just feel like to be out here right now is to be with Dylan. I just needed to be out here," Palmetto Ridge High School student Jaleeza Serrano said Saturday.
The candlelight vigil ended around 11pm on Saturday.
