The family of the man shot by an FBI agent during an undercover drug sting organized a vigil for him tonight.

Allen Desdunes was shot Tuesday afternoon at the Motel 6 in New Orleans East.

The FBI says a final report will be provided to the Orleans Parish District Attorney`s Office and the US Attorney`s Office for their review early next week.
