YONKERS, N.Y. -- The six-month anniversary of the death of Yonkers resident Michael Nolan was marked Saturday by a gathering of friends and family at the site where he was killed, according to a report by News12.

Nolan was just 23 and a prospect for the Oakland As when he was gunned down last September.

According to the News12 report, the gathering was held at the shooting site on Central Avenue.

Nolan’s family is fighting for tougher gun laws, the News12 report said.

Four men have been arrested in the drive-by shooting: Bronx natives Nashaun Hunter, Darren Dawson and Tejmitra Singh; and Mount Vernon resident Garth O’Neil Cole.

Hunter was charged with felony counts of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon. The other three defendants were charged with first-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Yonkers police and the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office said that the shooters were retaliating after an argument during a drag race and a later altercation.

Multiple media reports have said that Nolan was present during the drag race, but had not actually taken part in it.

Police have said that they do not know if Nolan was the intended target.
