Vigil remembers man attacked, run over by car in Mount Vernon

MOUNT VERNON -

A vigil was held Wednesday evening for the Mount Vernon man who was brutally attacked before being run over by a car last week.

Dozens gathered on School Street in Yonkers where the victim, 41-year-old Tremayne Williams, grew up. Police found Williams last week laying lifeless on East Third Street in Mount Vernon.

Mount Vernon police say two men jumped Williams, then ran him over with a burgundy-colored Ford SUV.

The candlelight vigil served as a chance to remember his life and call for justice in his death.

Family members and friends spoke about Williams' life, calling him a loving father who worked with special-needs children.

Police are asking anyone with information on the case to call the New York State Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-866-313-TIPS.

Investigators say they are searching for at least three suspects involved in Williams' death.
