HAMPTON, Va. - Family and friends of Tyquan Woods celebrated what would be his 23rd birthday at Darling Stadium on Saturday.

Tyquan was shot to death back on July 12, 2014.

"This is all I could do, he's not here I can't do anything else," says Stephanie Woods, Tyquan's mother. "I'm not going to forget him, I'm going to keep his memory alive as best as I can."

A large group gathered outside with food and music to celebrate his life on Saturday evening.

Stephanie says she also wanted the event to serve as a reminder that one of the suspects in her son's murder is still at large.

Hampton Police arrested 22-year-old Calvin Jamar Schofield just five days after Tyquan was found along the sidewalk on North Back River Road. Police say he was shot to death.

25-year-old Larry Scott is also wanted in connection to Tyquan's death, but he has not been arrested.

"I know this guy needs to get picked up because he's out here living his life freely and my son is dead," says Stephanie.

Schofield is set to go to trial on Wednesday in Hampton Circuit Court.
