Family and friends of shooting victim gather for vigil
EL PORTAL, Fla. (WSVN) -- A quiet South Florida neighborhood shared both prayers and pain after being rocked by tragedy.
Mourners gathered for a candlelight vigil in El Portal to remember Kori Clark.
He was gunned down outside his home along Northeast 90th Street and Second Avenue Monday. "He's going to be terribly missed," said the victim's mother, Carolyn Clark. "I see his face. I was watching one of the newscasts with one of his pictures. I'm still numb. It's hard to believe that he's gone."
"Everyone's enraged because we are a close-knit community," said El Portal Mayor Daisy Black. "We look out for each other, and we don't expect things like this to happen in our community."
The 26-year-old was a recent college graduate.
Witnesses said two suspects, one armed with a high-powered assault rifle and another with a handgun, opened fire then sped off in a gray car. El Portal Chief Eugene Morales said, "There was numerous gunshots that were fired, including a high-powered rifle and handguns."
