Community Members Attend Vigil to Commemorate SC Shooting Victims
Saturday, June 20, 2015 10:34 PM EDT
Binghamton University students are collaborating with the community to remember the nine lives lost in the South Carolina church shooting.
Saturday night, the Graduate African Student Organization hosted a candlelight vigil at the First Assembly of God in Binghamton.
Tens of community members came to show their support in prayer.
Organizers felt the church was an important place to hold this event because the incident happened in a place of worship.
Students within the organization say the shocking news of the shooting makes them want to commemorate their brothers and sisters all while spreading peace.
