Hundreds Honor Shooting Victim

(KOB) Hundreds of people Wednesday returned to the spot in the Albuquerque foothills where James Boyd was shot by police officers.  

That incident happened in mid-March when Boyd was found illegally camping.  

Police say he threatened them with knives and refused to drop them; both lethal and non-lethal force were used by police.  Boyd died from his injuries.

Those who knew Boyd said he was a kind and brilliant man who they knew as "Aba."

"If someone could have just been like Aba, come down here!  Someone that knew him, it would have all ended differently," a friend said.
