Ja'Quares Walker's Funeral One Day After Investigators Say The Killing Is Justifiable

BIRMINGHAM - AL -

Family and friends are in mourning, the funeral service was held at Living Stone Temple church, community members tell me they're not too happy that no arrests have been made.

During the service, Walkers family was overcome with emotion during the ceremony and had to step outside. Many mourners wore red, black and white t-shirts with walker's picture saying "In loving memory of Tez". 

Dr. Al B. Sutton Jr. led a sermon preaching out the book of mark and had a direct message to young adults as well as the parents in the building. "Our son's, our daughters, if you want another chance, if you want another shot, our hope is in Christ. We as parents must be the guardians, we got to make sure that our children stay in a safe space, we got to make sure that our children are hedged in," says Sutton.

Walker was killed during a robbery attempt last week. Investigators say they received information that walker approached a car and told the driver to get out of the car. The driver then pulled out a handgun and shot the 13 year old.

Investigators determined that this case is justifiable, so no arrest or charges have been made in this case.

Meanwhile, friends and family gather as they say Ja'Quares Walker will be missed. Ja'Quares Walker was later buried at Zion Memorial Gardens.
