    It's becoming an all-too familiar sight in Prince George's County: Friends and family of a murdered teen gathering for a candlelight vigil.

    The latest took place Friday night for 18-year-olds Aaron Kidd and Aaron Shuford.

    They were shot and killed in Forestville Tuesday night, just a day after another teen, Charles Walker Jr., was murdered while walking to the bus.

    Kidd's mother, Theresa Williams, told News4's Shomari Stone that she is absolutely devastated.
