UPDATE: After a deadly shooting, Saturday morning, the family of the victim is speaking out.

Gregory K. Walker, 33, was shot and killed in what his family says was a robbery attempt.

Walker's family says he is an innocent victim in the incident and has no ties to gang activity.

The family is calling for justice and asking for those with information about the shooting to come forward.

"They took him away from his four kids, his family, his friends and most of all, his mother. I just miss him so much. Whoever did it, just turn yourself in, please. That is all I am asking. That is it," said Walker's mother, Annette Davis.

The family is holding a vigil for Walker on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Pilgrim's Rest Baptist Church.

The shooting was one of three overnight shootings in Waterloo. Several others were injured in the shootings.
