CLAYTON, NC (WTVD) -- A Cape Fear Community College student who was shot to death and robbed of a sandwich, cell phone, and $10 was remembered at a service in Clayton Wednesday.

Family and friends of 19-year-old Joshua Proutey paid their respects at the Cleveland Community Church.

Joshua's mother Patty Proutey said the more than one hundred people who came in and out of the church reminded her of the days during her son's life.

"Our door was a revolving door, and we had children in and out of our door constantly, and this is no different," said Proutey.

But now visitors through that revolving door will no longer be for Joshua. According to prosecutors, he left his job and was heading to his car after working an event at the Community Arts Center in downtown Wilmington last Thursday night when four people approached and demand his wallet and anything else of value.

Proutey handed over his wallet, but was then shot in the head.

Four people are charged with first-degree murder in the case. They are Jasmine Nikole Dottin, 19, Christopher Daniel Cromartie, 23, Quintel Raheem Grady, 22, and Daniel Henry, 17. Three of the four suspects are being held without bond.

Memorial contributions will benefit Guatemalan missions.
