BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - Family and friends gathered for a candlelight vigil outside a California apartment complex where a 3-year-old boy was shot and killed and his brother and pregnant mother were wounded.

Investigators have not released information on a suspect or possible motive in the shooting last Friday in Bakersfield.

Johniece Williams, who survived the shooting along with her unborn child, tells KBAK-TV that her sons were dancing to YouTube videos when somebody kicked the door in and opened fire. Three-year-old Major Sutton was killed. His 5-year-old brother was hit but is expected to be OK after surgery.

Bakersfield police and Kern County sheriff’s detectives are investigating.

At Monday’s vigil honoring her son, Williams asked for help from the community in identifying the shooter.
