JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Family gathered Thursday night in the Moncrief neighborhood to remember a teenager killed in a shooting last week at the Jacksonville Landing.

Khamoi Petersen would have turned 17 years old Thursday. 

That's why his family held a picnic to celebrate his life.

Tyrik Solomon, 18, was arrested last week in connection with the shooting. He has been charged with carrying a concealed weapon
