Family, friends, and the community gathered Saturday to celebrate the life of Andre Hill, who was shot and killed by a former Columbus Police officer back in December.

The event was a major step forward for his family as they continue their healing process.

The community not only gathered to celebrate the birthday of Hill but also to dedicate the Brentnell Community Center gymnasium in his honor. For those in the community, it was an opportunity to reflect and support his family.

“I think it’s wonderful, the community is coming together to celebrate his life. We’re here to encourage his loved ones that the community stands behind them, and we’re here to give our support,” said Tanesha Owens.

“I love that the community is coming together, and we’re just supporting justice for Andre," LaToya Gibson told ABC 6.
