Vigil held for 79-year-old man shot, killed in Chester

A vigil was held for a 79-year-old man who was shot and killed while driving his car early Wednesday evening in Chester. 

"He loved you even if you were a known enemy, a stranger, a friend. He loved everybody and he would do anything for anybody," Myeisha Kinlaw said.

Kinlaw called 79-year-old Robert Womack her grandfather and says his murder cuts deep.

"I was the victim of a drive-by shooting in 2010 so to know my grandpop is not here from dying from natural causes really hurt my feelings," she said.

A community came out to remember 79-year-old Robert Womack.

The shooting remains under investigation.
