CAIRO, IL (KFVS) - Teen remembered in candlelight vigil.

Less than a week ago a Mounds teen was gunned down outside of a Cairo bar.

Monday night people came together to remember 19 year old Jeserick Pilgram.

His family and friends gathered at the corner of Fourth and Commercial Streets to honor him in a candlelight vigil.

Pilgram was killed after an argument Thursday outside Mary J's Lounge.

Those in attendance say Pilgrim's death made many people realize just how short life really is.

28 year old Melvin Hadley, remains in the Tri County Detention Center in connection with that shooting.
