Paul Walker’s The Fast and the Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson visited the crash site of his close friend less than 24 hours after news broke of his death.
Heartbroken, the actor visited a makeshift memorial that was created over the weekend, breaking down in tears as he laid a flower at the scene. He didn't say anything to the assembled fans and media outlets. He just showed up, paid his tearful respects, and left.
TMZ has video from that heart-wrenching moment:
