OMAHA (KPTM)- Friends and family are remembering a teen who was shot Friday night.
18-year-old Gabriel Carrillo was shot at a house near 14th and Carter Lake Boulevard.
Sunday night his friends and family gathered outside of the home to remember him.
"I would take a bullet for, it would have been him and then when the opportunity arose, I wasn't there," Tabor McAndrews said.
Teachers at the walk say Gabriel was just hitting his prime. He went from failing school and constant suspensions to getting A's in honors classes.
"Once he got into the honors classes he flew, he just excelled. He wanted to go to school he didn't get suspended. He needed to be challenged and he wasn't being challenged, he was too smart for his own good," Gina Durfey said.
Friends and family told the crowd that Gabriel was a promising young writer who won awards.
A fund has been set to help the family with funeral costs. You can donate at the Heafey, Heafey and Hoffman funeral home on 78th and Center.
