Rain Stops as Locals, Spiritual Leaders Hold Candle Light Vigil For Charleston Victims

Even the rain stopped for a moment today as Trynati Donato, Stamford, lit candles for each of the victims of the Emmanuel AME Church shooting as her uncle Lee Fisher, head of local NAACP,  addressed the crowd gathered in Muller Plaza for a candle light vigil on Sunday.
