Victims of violence in our city were remembered at a local church.

A candlelight vigil was held at Mount Carmel Baptist in North Nashville Sunday evening.

People prayed for all murdered victims of gun violence. The bishop said these senseless crimes need to stop and encouraged others to love one another.

“Come together in unity,” Rev. Marcus Campbell said. “There's a movement now with the Community Oversight Board, the Black Lives Matter, as well as the NAACP, the IMF, and so many other organizations has a movement of just saying, ‘Hey we're tired.’ Nashville is a great city, but we need to come together more to make certain things happen that way we can really enjoy the city that we live in.”

The bishop said for the next three days people have been invited to pray for the community at his church.

The first-ever prayer event starts at 9 a.m. and runs until 9 p.m.
