Portsmouth, Va. - Two families are forever linked by a violent shooting.

They met once again to remember their two sons.

In April of 2009, two men, Demetrious Edens and Darren Wilson were shot and killed by Portsmouth police officers.

Those two families held a vigil just like they've done for the past 3 years.

In 2009, Edens and Wilson were shot and killed in Chesapeake by Portsmouth officers during a drug bust.

The police involved were cleared of any charges.

That never sat well with the families so they say they're continuing to speak up.

Tonight's vigil was held at the same place where the two men died.
