Albert Vaughn was the neighborhood guardian, the older teenager who would play ball with the younger kids and try to keep them safe from trouble, friends said. "If he was guilty of anything, he was guilty of always protecting these kids," said Trualanda Fields, a neighborhood mother who was among the 50 people who gathered Monday night on South Throop Street to pay tribute to the 18-year-old they called Li'l Albert. They wept, sang and often chanted "say no more," a favorite phrase of Vaughn's before helping someone.
