A “stop the violence” prayer vigil has been set for 6 p.m. Saturday at Game Time, 120 Broadway, in remembrance of the 20 children and 6 adults who were shot to death last Friday in Newtown, Conn.

Among those scheduled to speak at the event are Mayor Byron W. Brown; Common Council President David A. Franczyk; and newly appointed Buffalo Jobs Development Director Antoine Thompson.

Members of various community groups also plan to memorialize local homicide victims, as well as address a recent shooting on Broadway in which two people were wounded.
