CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WTVR) -- Today friends and family gathered at Iron Bridge Park for a vigil to celebrate what would have been Matthew McDaniel's 20th birthday.

While walking home from a party last May, McDaniel was shot only a few hundred feet from home. Chesterfield Police still have yet to find the shooter.

McDaniel's family and friends gathered Sunday to release balloons in honor of his birthday.
