BRIDGEPORT -

The family of the man who was shot and killed in Bridgeport tells News 12 Connecticut they are still reeling five days after his death.

There will be a vigil at Scalizi Park in Stamford Sunday from 5:30 to 8 p.m. to pay tribute to 41-year-old Anthony McKinstry.

Police are still looking for the person who shot McKinstry in the back of the head around 1:30 Monday morning.

The family says McKinstry is originally from Stamford, but had moved to North Carolina and was visiting a friend in Bridgeport at the time of his death.

They say McKinstry was a good person whose tragic death has left them demanding justice.
