NORTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Family and friends of a man shot and killed near I-70 in north St. Louis gathered Monday at the scene of the shooting to remember him.

Police said Dwayne Gibbs, 30, of Harlan Court in St. Louis, was shot in the 4700 block of Bircher at a BP gas station.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A suspect left the scene in a car. No arrests have been made.

Gibbs' mother Kim Small said she is at a loss and is doing all she can to keep his memory alive for his eight children.

"I'm not going to allow them to forget their dad. I'm not going to forget my son. Dwayne will live on, he will live on," Small said.

Small and other residents in the Penrose neighborhood say Gibbs' death shows the neighborhood is being ignored.

"We do not have adequate amounts of police to protect us," said Anita Childress, a neighbor and friend. "If you call the police, it takes 20-30 minutes. One time I called the police and they said they were not coming at all."

An unrelated sign with the words "Enough is Enough" captured Gibbs' frustration.
