“You need to put down everything, all this gang violence,” Lucki Pannell’s mother said Monday evening, standing on the front porch where her daughter was shot and killed just over a week ago. “This is my baby.”
Friends, family and community members filled the sidewalk outside the Pannell’s home Monday night for a candlelight vigil with church hymns, memories of the vivacious teen, and pleas to end street violence of the sort that killed Pannell.
The vigil began with a half mile walk from Cardozo High School, where Pannell was a senior.
A memorial service for Pannell is planned for Tuesday morning.
