(KLS News) A community comes together to remember a three-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed last week by his four-year-old brother.

The Lambert family organized the candle light vigil as a way to remember young Ryker.

He and his brother had apparently found the key to the gun safe in their home, unlocked it, and took out the loaded gun. The accident happened while their mother was sleeping.

Reagan Lambert/ Ryker's Mother: "A friend of mine was pretty upset about what was being said about me by some of the neighbors in the neighborhood and decided a candlelight vigil would maybe get some people together to really get to know how me and my family are, and then to rememberr Ryker as a person, as the loving little wonderful boy that he was."

Several of the people who brought signs and toys were neighbors of the Lamberts.
