MCCORDSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) -The family of a McCordsville teenager who was shot and killed at a Lawrence gas station is asking for help, in finding those responsible.

About a hundred people attended a vigil outside the Marathon gas station on 56th Street near Interstate 465 Friday evening.

The Lawrence Police chief, multiple officers and even the mayor came out for the vigil as well.

“This is just amazing to see so many people come out; words can’t describe it,” said Jonathan Jobin, Kyle’s older brother.

Kyle Jobin, 19, was home during Christmas break from Vincennes University, when police say he was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time on Jan. 4.

They say he’d gone to get a pack of cigarettes from that gas station when a witness saw four men surround his car, knocking on it and trying to open windows.

When the witness came back with police, they found Kyle shot in the head.

“It’s just really really hard. I just miss him,” Jonathan said.

Detectives say they’ve exhausted all leads and are in need of the public’s help.

Kyle’s family says they’re hoping someone will say something, and speak up, so they can have justice for Kyle.

“We just don’t want another family to go through this. We never ever want to see another family have to go through this,” said Cyndi Jobin, Kyle’s mom.
