Peace rally held after Christmas Eve slaying

A rally for peace was held in Asbury Park Sunday as police officers urge residents to come forward with information about a deadly Christmas Eve shooting.

Approximately 100 residents, church members, politicians and local law enforcement officers took to the streets to make their voices heard. They gathered in front of Cesar Torralba?s apartment on Sixth Avenue in a show of solidarity. Torralba was gunned down in front of his apartment. So far, no suspects have been caught.

Some of Torralba?s friends believe there are witnesses out there, but they are afraid to contact the police. Officials say part of the reason they held the rally was to alleviate that fear. During the rally, officials promised support and protection for anyone who comes forward with information.

There is a $10,000 reward for anyone with information leading to the arrest of those responsible for Torralba?s death.
