One man says his girlfriend has not been able to get to their house since 7:30 p.m. Tuesday when she got off work and he has been waiting since 1 am. Wednesday.
"She got to go to work in the morning too, and I go back to work tomorrow early. I am hungry, it's raining, I am tired, I am just depressed ma'am," said Glaston Barnett.
However, after 10 hours, people were finally able to get into their homes.
Family and friends of Pugh gathered Wednesday night to remember the 19-year-old. They held hands, hugged, and prayed as they remembered him.
Several of the people who gathered for the roadside vigil wore t-shirts that read “L T M TY,” which stood for “Live Through Me Ty."
“Ty” short for Tyrone.
“Everybody that knew him loved his personality and the way he acted," said LaShaun, a close friend of Pugh.
It is unknown if there is one shooter or more and the identity of the teen has not been released.
