Members of Paul Walker's stunned, grieving family as well as friends gathered Monday night to mourn at the site of the car crash that killed the actor over the weekend.
Police helped clear a space for Walker's loved ones amid other mourners and onlookers, Antonio Holmes, a body-shop worker who knew Walker through his Always Evolving racing team, tells PEOPLE. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Walker's Fast and Furious studio Universal obtained the necessary police permit for the gathering.
It was not immediately clear which family members attended. Walker is survived by his mother and father, two brothers, a sister and his 15-year-old daughter Meadow.

Onscreen and off, Paul Walker loved the adrenaline rush of racing cars. But some of his time behind the wheel was quieter – and even closer to his heart.
Driving his daughter, Meadow Rain, to school in the morning, "I just shut up, sit back and stay quiet," he told PEOPLE in 2011, when she was about to turn 13. "She opens up and reveals a whole lot. The trick is to not ask questions, just listen. I'm figuring it out."
Walker, who died in a car crash on Saturday, was a proud and devoted father to Meadow, who turned 15 in November. Tragically, witnesses say, she was on hand to support her dad at his Reach Out Worldwide charity car show in Santa Clarita, Calif., when Walker and friend Roger Rodas left for a spin in a Porsche Carrera GT and never came back.

Hours after the fiery car crash that killed Paul Walker, the 40-year-old star of the Fast and Furious movie franchise, and another man, details from eye witnesses and police have emerged to show that the accident occurred during a charity car show that went horribly wrong.
"We were collecting toys for the Indiana tornado victims and the Philippine [typhoon] victims," says Jim Torp, who attended the event held by Always Evolving, a Valencia, Calif.-based automotive company. "There were dozens of high-end race cars and custom-built cars on display."
As the car show was winding down, Walker, whose 15-year-old daughter Meadow Rain also was at the event, got into a red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT with the car's driver, Always Evolving owner Roger Rodas.
