Memorial held for 26-year-old killed on Oaks Day

Posted: Updated:

Louisville, Ky. (WDRB News) - A memorial for a man murdered on Oaks Day erupts into anger. Friends and family of 26-year-old Quintez Thompson said prayers, sang songs and released balloons, outside Dino's food mart on Broadway. That's where Thompson was shot to death on May 3rd. 27-year-old Terrance Dobbins is charged with his murder.

The victim's relatives says they feel for the family of the suspect.

"They're not just doing the things to one family, sending us out here on this parking lot this evening. His family is now sitting around a supper table crying because he's never coming back home," said Connie McFarland, cousin.

"As long as we have stores like this coming in our communities, staying open 24 hours for young people to hang out all night, they're going to keep on dying," said Cynthia Dunbar, aunt.

Thompson's cousin says he was a father of two and was the kind of person that, if you got to know him, you met a friend.
