GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Friends, family, and local anti-violence activists gathered in Greenwood Saturday to honor the life of a teen who was shot to death in 2013.

The group gathered at the worship site of Nicholtown South Missionary Baptist Church at the Brewer Recreation Center on Cambridge Street Saturday afternoon to remember Malik Padgett, who would have turned 16 earlier in the week, organizers said.

Padgett was shot and killed at a birthday party in Greenwood back in April 2013, and five others were shot.

Padgett, who was from Columbia, was visiting family when the shooting occurred.

Greenwood Police said Dayterrius White was charged in the murder of the teen.
