Wake held on Long Island for Boy Scout killed by suspected drunk driver

MANORVILLE, Long Island (WABC) -- Family and friends gathered on Friday to honor the life of a Boy Scout killed by a suspected drunk driver on Long Island.

Fellow Boy Scouts were among the mourners who attended the wake for 12-year-old Andrew McMorris.

McMorris was walking with his fellow scouts on September 30 along a road in Manorville when police say 59-year-old Thomas Murphy plowed into them.

Andrew's family is remembering him as a talented, active child who had a passion for aviation.

The funeral will be held on Saturday.
