BAY SHORE - Family and friends of Brandon Sotomayor held a candle-light vigil in Bay Shore tonight, two days after he was shot and killed.

The vigil took place on Riley Street in Bay Shore, the scene of Sotomayor's death. Police say Sotomayor was sitting in a truck parked on Riley Street when two hooded men approached the car, shooting Sotomayor 15 times in the face and chest.

According to the driver of the truck, Sotomayor's last words before collapsing were, "Call the police." The two suspects then fled on foot.

Suffolk County police are investigating the shooting. They say no arrests have been made and they're still unsure of a motive.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday for Sotomayor at Roses Funeral Home in Brentwood from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
