tonight's vigil

On Tuesday night, there was a shooting on my street. Ceasefire will hold a vigil tonight, March 30, for the victim, Clyde Flowers. He was a young man from the neighborhood who I never met.

The vigil will begin at 5:30 pm at Fargo and Ashland, where the incident took place, and will proceed around the block.

At 6:00 p.m. there will be a police roll call.

This was a young man, someone's son, someone's friend. We have very little information about the shooting. We don't yet know who the identity of the shooter or the motive.

Thanks to Ceasefire for this vigil and for their efforts to end gun violence in the neighborhood.
