A candlelight prayer vigil will take place on Friday evening to mourn the death of two-month-old Marcello Vasquez, the infant who passed away after being mortally wounded during Thursday night's Downtown Art Walk.

A memorial flyer posted at the site of the crash near 4th and Spring said that Marcello was born on May 20.

The prayer vigil will take place at 8pm. It is being organized by New City Church, which meets one block from where the tragic event took place.

“Our hearts are broken for baby Marcello and the family," said Pastor Kevin Haah on Friday afternoon. "I think the community needs to come together to mourn and pray for the family."
