"What's wrong with this world? It's like, it's crazy, to lose somebody close to you. It's sad, Tyler’s friend, King Morgan said.
Police already have one man, Datrail Clayton, in jail after charging him with murder.
They are still looking for at least two other gunmen.
Tyler's funeral will be the morning of June 15, in Arkansas, where he was born.
