Hundreds of family and friends of his gathered for a vigil for Hernandez on June 4.
“Amazing, it’s a huge family and I’m so glad that everybody is getting together for this, because they are usually the ones that help everybody out and this time it’s our turn to show them the support that they have always shown everybody else”, says his cousin Wendy Maldonado.
Regardless of the rain on Sunday, people continued to arrive to the vigil, carrying posters that read “Justice For Johnny.”

“He was always very calm, gentle, very caring, loving family guy,” says Maldonado.
“It was not only damage to their family, it was damage to a community,” says Lopez.
