Join Thursday’s anti-gun prayer vigil

Fresh Start Fathers, the Greer Family and Austin residents will hold the 13th annual anti-gun violence prayer vigil from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the corner of Lotus Avenue and Congress Parkway. Since 17-year-old Marcus Greer was killed in 2008, an annual prayer vigil has been held in his memory to speak out against gun violence.

Missing 15-year-old remembered

Family and friends of Yasmin Acree gathered Wednesday to mark the six-year anniversary of the high school freshman’s disappearance. They believe they know who’s responsible and question what police are doing to solve the case.
