LIVINGSTON - Friends and family turned out in huge numbers today to say goodbye to Brendan Patrick Tevlin.

The 19-year-old was killed last week while visiting a friend in West Orange. He was shot several times and his body was found in his Jeep.

More than 1,000 people crowded into Saint Philomena's Church in Livingston to mourn his loss.

Two tents were set up outside to accommodate the overflow.

Tevlin was a graduate of Seton Hall Prep and had just finished his freshman year at the University of Richmond.

Police are still hunting for the suspect. A $25,000 reward is available for anyone who can lead police to the attackers.
