LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A vigil will be held Wednesday night for the man killed while walking with his wife in Cherokee Triangle.

Jason Spencer, 34, was shot and killed Sunday night during a random robbery in the 1200 block of Everett Avenue near Patterson Avenue and Bardstown Road. 

He was 30 years old and had just returned from his honeymoon a day earlier after being married on Oct. 27.

Police say Spencer was confronted by two teenagers, and exchanged gunfire with one of them. A 15-year-old boy was later arrested near 11th and Hill Streets with a gunshot wound.

Police are still looking for the second suspect. 

The vigil is set for 6 p.m. at Christ Church United Methodist on Brownsboro Road.
