BALTIMORE — Another ceasefire weekend began at midnight as the city marked the 200th homicide this year and organizers aren't letting anything including COVID-19 slow them down.

Although there are some virtual events planned for this weekend, the church Homewood Friends hosted a vigil in honor of Black lives this evening. It was held in front of the meeting house on North Charles Street.

They work in partnership, supporting with the ceasefire group and hold vigils every Friday.

Organizers stopped the vigils for a little while when the pandemic started, but then started them again after George Floyd's death,
