WESTBROOK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Friends and family of 19-year-old Old Port shooting victim Trey Arsenault gathered Tuesday for a candlelight vigil in Westbrook. Some of the people were carrying guns on their hips.
The mood at the vigil, while solemn for most of the roughly 100 people, was also tense. Police stood nearby, reminding the gun carriers that although it's within their rights to bear arms, they need to be careful.
Zack Wescott said he has been best friends with Arsenault for the past 10 years.
"I balled my eyes out this morning at 8 a.m.," Westcott said.
He attended the vigil wearing Arsenault's t-shirt, which Arsenault left at his house one of the many times they hung out together. Wescott said Arsenault was funny, positive and a fierce competitor on the football field for Westbrook High School. He's shocked Arsenault is gone.
