An enormous crowd showed up Thursday evening  to honor fallen fire Lt. William Walker.

He was shot to death in his driveway Sunday evening, by an unknown suspect. Fellow firefighters led Thursday's remembrance.

Patrick Kelly, the Interim Cleveland Fire Chief said,  "He was a great firefighter, a great paramedic. He represented us well. And I can tell you this...that I'm a better man for having known Will Walker."

Firefighters, policeman, friends and neighbors came out to the street where he was killed to honor him.

"This is brotherly love here. This is what we as fireman, police officers, Masonic brothers... This is what we do. This would have been the dame for any brother that went down but especially this one because he was so loved,"  Cleveland firefighter, Elliott Clark said.

Police are still searching for the person who killed Lt. Walker.

Frank Szabo, the President Association of Cleveland Firefighters said, "So, we can never allow the darkness to overcome the goodness of Will's life. And that's why we're here this evening and that's why we will never forget."
