Vigil held for Parkersburg native shot and killed in Huntington

PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - A vigil was held Sunday night for a Parkersburg native shot and killed in Huntington earlier this month.

Dozens attended the vigil at City Park in Parkersburg for Aaron Black, 20, of Huntington, who was shot and killed in an apartment in Huntington on September 2.

His friends described him as someone to go to if you wanted to smile or for a good laugh.

Ashlee Keel went to school with Black, who said he'll be remembered for his caring, bubbly personality.

"I came out to the vigil because I hope that our community along with everyone else can come together and see how much the world really does need love and peace because it's really scary out there," she said.

Jordan Colebank considered Black his best friend.

"For something like this to happen it just hurts you know it was way too early it just shouldn't have been him or anybody else but I just wish it wouldn't happen to him," Colebank said.

Colebank urges the person who shot Black to turn himself in.

Police believe that person is Quenton Sheffield, 24, of Huntington. He has yet to be apprehended.
