Candlelight vigil held for teen killed minutes into new year

Friends and family held a candlelight vigil Saturday in honor of a teenager who was fatally shot minutes into the new year. Bernard Thomas, 17, known to his friends and family as "Mooshka," and two others were shot on Gelston Drive in southeast Baltimore minutes into New Year's Day. Mooshka and another boy died; a 16-year-old boy survived. Bernard's mother, Joy Turner, said the last week has been filled with pain and she wants people to know his life will not be vain.
