    A candlelight vigil was held Wednesday evening for the victim of an unsolved murder who was killed more than two months ago.

    On September 30 at around 5:30 a.m. police officers responded to reports of an assault in the 5000 block of Sterling Court in Chollas Creek.

    When they arrived at the scene, they discovered Michael Gabriel “Gabe” Hallman, 34, in front of a home suffering from multiple stab wounds. Hallmann was transported to the hospital, but died from his injuries later that morning.

    According to investigators that day, Hallmann was involved in a fight in front of one of the homes in Sterling Court, though it is still unknown who he was fighting with or why he was fighting.

    “We’re trying to determine what actually occurred, but we do know that we have a male who has been stabbed several times,” said Lt. Darryl Hoover at the scene back on Sept. 30.

    More than two months since Hallmann’s stabbing death, detectives continue to look for leads in his unsolved murder. Investigators are asking anyone with information on this case to call SDPD Homicide at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

    On Wednesday at 6 p.m., Hallmann’s mother, Jennifer, held a candlelight vigil for her son at the Ramona Soccer League fields near 2nd Street in Ramona. Surrounded by family and friends, Jennifer honored Hallmann’s memory.

    During the vigil, the grieving mother told NBC 7 that an arrest had finally been made in her son's case. She said police had contacted her with the news earlier in the day.

    NBC 7 reached out to officials to confirm the arrest, but calls were not immediately returned.
