Vigil held for shooting victims, community in Uptown
A large crowd gather in Uptown tonight for a vigil for the victims of a shooting there earlier this week as well as the community itself.
People sang and prayed outside Uptown Baptist Church. Those who gathered didn’t call for more police. They called for more prayer.
The group prayed on all four corners of Wilson and Sheridan just two days after five people were shot while waiting for the bus.
Brianna Williams says her 21-year-old boyfriend pushed others out of the way before being shot in the head. Darius Oliver is on life support.
Chicago Police say no one is in custody for the shooting.
