Baltimore Ceasefire ambassadors prayed for the city Monday after violence hit during the Ceasefire weekend.

Ceasefire founder, Erricka Bridgeford and Baltimore residents used sage to cleanse the area at Broadway and Eager Streets.

Police said three people were shot in the 900 block of Broadway Sunday.

At last check, one of the victims remained in grave condition

Even though no one died in this shooting, Bridgeford said it's important to keep raising awareness.

"If he passes away, we'll come back and bless the actual space where he was to pour light in there and honor his light passing out of his body but right now were here to really focus on love and beginning the process of any semblance of healing."

Bridgeford said one person did die during Ceasefire weekend but she still sees it as a success because the events bring the community together to combat violence.
