DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Family members of a Davenport man who was fatally shot are working to keep his case in the public eye.

The Quad-City Times reports ( ) that relatives of Justin J. McBridge held a vigil Saturday to mark the six-month anniversary of the day he was found dead in his apartment of a gunshot wound to the chest.

His mother, Marilyn Mallett of Little Rock, Ark., says she hopes the vigil touches the heart of someone who may know something about her son’s death.

About 70 people attended the vigil and spent the night singing, praying and lighting candles.

Davenport Police Capt. Brent Biggs says investigators are working diligently on the case, but at this point, authorities have nothing new to report.
