ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A vigil is underway for 16-year-old Robert Dorsey. The star basketball player was murdered outside of a home near Affton where he was living.

RJ was set to be a junior at Bayless High School.  He had just turned 16 with his whole life ahead of him. But now he is St. Louis` latest young life lost to gun violence.

Dorsey was shot and killed Wednesday shortly after 9:00pm. It happened at the home of RJ’s grandmother on Vegas Drive near Lemay Ferry Road in south St. Louis County.
