LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) -Family and friends of slain firefighter, Guadalupe David De Luna Jr. gathered to remember him a year after his death.

Thursday marked the one-year anniversary of the firefighter who police say was killed by a CBP officer.

In his memory, the De Luna Family held a special prayer vigil for Guadalupe at the Divine Mercy Park.

Family members and people who were close to De Luna wore t-shirts in his honor and sent off balloons.

Organizers say they wanted to hold an event last year but were not able to due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Even a year later, the family is still grieving the death of their local hero.
