A family holds a candlelight vigil in hopes that it will bring to light the unsolved murder of a young mother shot and killed five years ago. The vigil for Melissa Romero was held in a park just a few blocks from where she was killed in a drive-by shooting. The killer was never caught and Romero's family is hoping someone will come forward with information so they can have closure. "It's horrible, it needs to stop already," said Amber Smith, Melissa's sister. "All it does it cause hurt and pain and takes people from us, beautiful people like my sister and they don't deserve to die they way they did." Investigators say Romero was an innocent victim and they are not sure who the target in the shooting was.
