SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Utah News) – About 150 family members and friends gathered in Liberty Park Wednesday night to remember the 16 year old victim of an unsolved murder.
Paris Gustin was shot and killed in the Fairpark area of Salt Lake City early Tuesday morning.
At a candlelight vigil Wednesday, his uncle Rex McArthur told ABC4 Utah News that Paris was an only child who just turned 16 on June 5th and recently completed his sophomore year at East High School.
“He was just a good kid,” Shante said. “He was sweet. He took care of his Mom. He took care of his Grandma. He cared about all of us, I mean all he wanted to do was be with family and you know we have a really big family and we were all very close. We were all together the night it happened, never knowing that when he walked out that would be the last time we would see him. None of us had any idea.”
The Salt Lake City Police Department is investigating Paris’ murder.
The family has set up a GoFundMe account to take donations for funeral expenses:
