In March of 2012, Phillip McMillian, 17, was killed in a drive by shooting in Troy. A year later to the date, his family comes together to march in that neighborhood. They are looking for answers while police still look for a suspect. Erin Vannella reports.

TROY, N.Y. -- "I miss him. I miss him," said Phillip McMillian's brother, Carlton Daniels. "I feel good that we got people up here to march."

Family, neighbors and friends of Phillip McMillian march in his honor a year after the teen was shot and killed.

"It was hard, real hard," said McMillian's friend, Miguel John. "I still can't believe it today. It doesn't seem real."

"I just want him to be remembered," said Daniels. "I hope they find someone who did it."

At the time of the apparent drive by, police were looking for a shooter belonging to a dark colored car with front end damage. This spring, the scene holds only memories, no new leads.

"Guns got to stop," said McMillian's mother, Amy McMillian. "I don't know what we're going to do. They want to kill each other. Why? Why do they want to take a life? Poor Phillip was killed for nothing."

Amy McMillian still grieves for her son, but her steps Thursday, she said, are for the greater good. For her and those close to Phillip, his life should be the last taken by a gun.

"Most of it's just wrong place, wrong time," said John. "I just wish everyone would stop killing each other."
