Pool Hall Memorial for slain teen

Lee County -- Friends gather for the second straight day, to remember a Lee County teenager killed in a Police shooting.

Dozens of teenagers held a memorial service for Wesley Beaver at the Break Times Pool Hall, which Beaver frequented. The 17 year old burglary suspect was shot Sunday night after a high speed chase with deputies.

Beaver's friends said the memorial was not to place blame for his death, but to remember Wesley. One of the organizers of the memorial, Laci McClure, said "We came up here to celebrate his life. Tell the funny stories. So we are not mourning, we are celebrating the life of Wesley."

Many of the teens have their painted their cars honoring Beaver.
