JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- As police search for his killer, family and friends of a slain gas station owner gathered Saturday for a vigil.
Nearly 100 people showed up with flowers, candles and balloons to honor 49-year-old Praful Patel.
Patel was shot and killed during a robbery at his Stop & Go on Allison Lane in Jeffersonville Thursday night.
His family is thankful for the community's outpouring of support.
"This was just senseless. But the support that the community has shown really means a lot at a time like this," Patel's son, Shyam, said.
Police are looking for a light-skilled male who was seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt and dark sweatpants.
If you have any information about the suspect, call Jeffersonville Police.
