More than a hundred friends, and family, gathered to remember a Sioux City man shot to death early Sunday morning.

A candlelight vigil, at Dale Street Park, honored 20-year-old Adrian Rojas Hernandez.

Police believe 20-year-old Martin Castellanos shot Hernandez, and dumped the body in a ditch near Canton, South Dakota.

Friends told us Hernandez was well-respected and was, quote "like a brother to everyone."

"Adrian, man, was just a happy little guy, man. He was full of energy all the time," said Jose Ravera, friend.

"He was always telling jokes. He was a funny guy. He always had a smile on his face no matter what," said Nelson Galdamz, friend.

As of Monday night, police are still searching for Hernandez's killer.
