The murder of 8-year-old Jurnee Thompson Friday evening sent shockwaves throughout the city. It highlighted the unfortunate fact that at least 12 kids have died from gun violence in St. Louis since April.

Radio One partnered with James Clark, the vice president of community outreach for Better Family Life to hold a vigil in remembrance of  Thompson and the children who have lost their lives to the gun violence that has plagued our community.
