CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla – Under Friday night lights, people from all over Southwest Florida came together at Charlotte High School to honor a Port Charlotte teen killed while protecting his little sister.

Attendees at Friday’s football game against Port Charlotte High School wore white in remembrance of Khyler Edman. The 15-year-old was killed during a home invasion that happened in September.

After a moment of silence, students released doves for Edman.
