Several hundred young people gathered this evening in Rockwell Park in Bristol, to remember a 19-year-old man who was stabbed to death at a house party.

Despite chilling temperatures, a large crowd of people gathered in a parking lot to remember Joey Klett.

Many held candles, or wore shirts in honor of the slain teenager.

Friends remembered Klett as a funny young man who could cheer up his friends, and as a country boy who loved off-roading and went fishing.

Police say Klett was killed by Joshua Daniels.  Daniels was taken into custody in North Carolina.
