Hundreds Honor Shooting Victim

Hundreds Honor Shooting Victim

Candlelight vigil held at site where Albuquerque police shot unarmed homeless man.
(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.
