Adam's mother, Elizabeth Toledo, is asking that the community respect her son by remaining peaceful.

"No one has anything to gain by inciting violence," Mrs. Toledo said. "Adam was a sweet and loving boy. He would not want anyone else to be injured or die in his name."

Additionally, Joel Hirschhorn of the nationwide firm of Gray Robinson PA, has joined Adeena Weiss Ortiz of Weiss Ortiz PC, in handling the case.
