Dozens pack into a local church to remember a 23-year-old who was shot to death last November. Brandon Wright was laid to rest Thursday morning.

Friends and family members say they still can't believe the Jefferson graduate was killed while driving on a road in Rockford's east side on a Saturday morning in November of 2011.

Police are looking for 23-year-old Luis Anaya as a suspect. Investigators say he allegedly shot Wright near Perryville and Linden Road, causing his car to spin out into a field. If you have any information please call Crimestoppers.

    I'm pretty sure this is the same guy arrested earlier this year, twice, for stalking his ex, domestic violence, etc. Maybe he wasn't the outstanding young man everybody is saying...

    I didn't know Brandon but from the things I heard about him he was an outstanding young man.Its a tragedy to lose someone altogether but it touches the commumity as a whole to lose a fine outstanding man who wuld have made a difference in this community. My prayers go out to the family and friends of Mr. Brandon Wright. God bless..
