LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The pressure is on to catch a killer.

Dozens gathered on 22nd Street in the Portland neighborhood Friday to remember two brothers.

Brandon Borders, 21, and Timothy O'Connor, 17, were gunned down in a nearby alley in 2009. Every year, their parents hold a vigil to remember their sons and demand answers.

"All we can do is keep hoping," said Timothy O'Connor, the father of one of the victim's. "Just keep hoping maybe one day somebody will say something for some kind of closure." 

In addition to releasing balloons, friends and family also lit candles in the brothers' memory.
