COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) - More than 100 people attended a candlelight vigil to remember a Papa John’s worker who was recently killed during an armed robbery in Columbia.

According to media reports, the vigil was held Saturday outside the Papa John’s store where 22-year-old Gordon Schaffer was fatally shot during the robbery last month. Seventeen-year-old Darious A. Fitzpatrick has been charged with killing him.

Friends who spoke during the vigil on Saturday remembered Schaffer’s sense of humor, while his family reflected on his kindness and acceptance of others.

Prosecutors want to try Fitzpatrick as an adult. He also faces charges related to the gunpoint robberies of two Dollar General stores last month.

Authorities say at least one suspect connected with the Papa John’s robbery is still at large.
