SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Nearly 100 people gathered on Sullivan's Island late Wednesday afternoon to remember a Wando High School student who was fatally stabbed Sunday after an argument over Snapchat messages.
"It was absolutely awful. Lucas was the only kid in Mount Pleasant I could honestly say was going to change this world," said Hunter Randels.
It was an evening to remember 17-year-old Lucas Cavanaugh. Friends sang songs, lit candles and spoke about Lucas's character.
"He was just there for me at all times," said Krystal Burch.
"Lucas was one of the greatest people I have ever met," said Luke Gruner.
"It was awful. He didn't deserve that. He didn't deserve that at all," said Randels.
The teen was
in the Park West Subdivision. Police say 16-year-old Matthew Fisher killed Cavanaugh during an apparent argument over Fischer's girlfriend.
Investigators believe the altercation was sparked over a social media application called Snapchat. It allows someone to send pictures and videos that disappear within a matter of seconds. Officer's haven't said what Cavanaugh initially sent to Fischer's girlfriend.
"It was just horrifying," said Gruner.
"Some things can't be undone," said Burch.
Close friends say prayer is helping them cope with this tragedy and that Lucas will always have a special place in their hearts.
"All I can think of and hear in my mind is his laugh. He had a beautiful smile," said Randels.
"He is such a special person. He couldn't be forgotten ever," said Burch.
