Candlelight vigil in honor of Caleb Lett

Tributes poured out this evening for Caleb Lett, the 19-year-old who was shot and killed in Moss Point on Monday.

Lett’s church family at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church held a candlelight vigil in his memory as a way for his family and friends to begin the healing process.

Caleb is remembered as an active member of the St. Peter’s and a person with a giving heart.

As people recalled fond memories of their friend, Caleb’s Aunt Tabitha Lett says the outpouring of sympathy from the community is heartwarming. “He made such a huge impact in 18 years, that yeah, he’s never going to be forgotten. Ever.”

A 2020 graduate of Moss Point High School, one of Caleb’s assistant principals says he became a school leader over the course of his education. Moss Point High Assistant Principal Angela Campbell said, “He just was a genuine human being who loved others, which makes this even more difficult because we all love him so much.”

Tonight’s vigil also included a balloon release and grief counselors were on hand to help community members.
