Stop the Violence.

That's the message behind a local vigil taking place in Homestead Tuesday night.

Councilmember Jimmie Williams calling for the community to show unity in the face of the recent violence plaguing in the city.

The vigil coming a week after cops say a 13-year-old boy was shot and killed while neighborhood friends were messing around with a loaded gun.

The vigil takes place from 6pm to 10pm at Blakey Park, which is located at 600 SW 14th Avenue.
