CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte community gathered together Sunday morning to honor those killed a week ago in two mass shootings.
The New Outreach Christian Center held a candlelight prayer vigil to remember the victims killed in last weekend's tragedies in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
"I'm crying out for those people that went in the store to get something for themselves and their loved one," Pastor Brenda Stephenson said. "How you gonna tell a child momma won't come back?"
There will be another candlelight prayer vigil at the center Monday.
It is on Gossett Avenue and it will start at 1 p.m.
