SAN PABLO, Fla. – Family members and friends of a man killed during a dispute in San Pablo gathered for a candlelight vigil Wednesday evening.

Tony Vanlandingham, 28, was stabbed and shot to death outside an apartment complex on Bermuda Road early Monday morning.

"He was my baby. I can't even go home, I can't sleep, I can't eat. It's hard, I can't move on," she said. "I just want anybody who knows what happened to come forward. My son didn't deserve to die. Please, he needs justice."
