Vigil Held for Tyler Jett

By  | 

It was a sad end to a long emotional week for the family and friends of 7 year old Tyler Jett.

Jett was attacked by dogs last Tuesday and died over the weekend in a Pensacola hospital.

The entire community has rallied behind the family as they've grieved. Monday afternoon a fundraiser took place that raised over $5,000 towards funeral expenses.

Monday night, supporters gathered at the house where Jett was attacked where a memorial was set up and held a candlelight vigil in his memory.

Family members say the support from the community has been overwhelming.
