WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Police arrested three people on charges of felony murder in connection with a deadly shooting that killed a 1-year-old boy and injured two women.

The shooting happened Monday night at the Sugar Creek Apartments. Thursday family and friends gathered for a prayer vigil in honor of the baby who died.

Little Taidyn Anderson had just celebrated his birthday in December. His mother, Tiara Anderson says no matter what sentence the shooter receives, it will never be enough for what she now has to bare.

 “My baby saved my life,” said Tiara.

“She was holding him, the bullet went through her arm, through his head, and stopped right before her heart,” said Mikiya Gladney, Taidyn’s aunt.

That shooting happened on Monday night at Sugar Creek Apartments. Taidyn was killed and Tiara was one of the women injured, along with her sister who is still in the hospital.

On Thursday family and friends gathered under a billboard at Kellogg and Webb that shows Taidyn's picture to pray for and remember him. Tiara and her family say the boy was their ray of sunshine.

“He just started walking, talking, running, all that. Dancing, running,” said Gladney.

“He would facetime me with the biggest smile on his face and take off running with his mom's phone,” said Victoria McParlin, Taidyn’s grandmother.

The vigil was full of emotion, lots of hugs, crying, and disbelief that someone could take this little boy's life.

Police have arrested a teenager, and two men in connection to the murder.

“Three grown men to come and try to kill a woman and accidentally kill a child either way is pitiful. It makes no sense, why does it take three men for a woman,” said Michael Gladney II, Taidyn’s godfather.

“It took 90 seconds for all of our lives to change forever,” Gladney II added.

Family says that although his life was short, Taidyn's smile and joy and strength will always be remembered.

“Within that year he's touched so many lives, made everybody's day made all of us smile,” said Mikiya Gladney.

Tiara believes her son will always be there for her.

“He'll take care of us, he's gonna still take care of us,” said Anderson.

But now, she wishes she could hear his voice, just one more time.

“He just started saying, mama. He was so good at it. I just wish he was still here,” said Anderson.

Tiara was just released from the hospital after being treated for her injuries.
