Springfield church members organizing meeting in support of shooting victims family


A group of community members are planning to come together after the murder of a teenager earlier this week.

The King's House Church of the Living God is asking people to gather at the scene of the shooting at the corner of 17th Street and Lawrence Avenue Thursday night at 6:30 p.m.

The church would like residents to come out to support the family of the 15-year-old victim and rally together to let the city know they won't stand for violence.

Police say Devante Green died Monday after being shot several times during an altercation between two groups. No arrests have been made yet.
