NASHVILLE, Tenn. - An unsolved murder case from five years ago is getting renewed attention from the community, and city and state leaders who hope this case will mark the end of teen gun violence.

A vigil, Tuesday night, for 14-year-old Ronquez Bigsby took a decidedly different tone.

There was still the grief that the teen had been murdered and it's unsolved. Bigsby was shot and killed August 11, 2010 in the James Cayce Homes in Nashville.

As more and more people kept showing up to Tuesday's vigil, including city and state leaders and one of the two remaining mayoral candidates, Megan Barry, the sadness turned into a pledge to help stop teen gun violence in Nashville.

LaShelle Bigsby is Ronquez's mother. She says she is grateful her son's case is getting more attention.

"I'm still hurting," she said. "I'm going to continue to hurt and I hope (whoever did it is) hurting too and I hope they have a conscious where they come forward. If you know anything come forward," said Bigsby.
