    Community members and activists gathered Wednesday to remember the life of Joshua Brown.

    Next Generation Action Network organized the candlelight vigil at Cherrywood Park in Dallas.

    At the vigil, friends talked about their last interactions with Joshua Brown. Many said he was a good person with a genuine heart who’d proven to be a loyal friend.

    Brown testified for the prosecution during the Amber Guyger trial. Days after the trial ended, police say Brown was shot and killed during a drug deal at his apartment.

    Some who’d interacted with Brown recently said he was fearful in the days following the trial.

    Organizer Dominique Alexander told the crowd that he’d heard from Joshua Brown’s mother, who said she appreciates the support from the Dallas community.
