BALTIMORE (WMAR) - On Tuesday, the Cathedral of the Incarnation held a service for the victims of gun violence in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting.
Although Las Vegas is nearly 2,500 miles a way, the shootings are on the minds of those who came to "A service of Lament for Victims of Gun Violence" in the church.
A bell rang out for each of the victims who lost their lives at the Las Vegas concert.
The Dean of the Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation, Rob Boulter, says one of the reasons for the service was to pray for the souls of those who were killed and for the families and for all those who have been affected by this.
Boulter says," My pray has been again and again..'Oh Lord, help us because what we are doing now is not working so we need to do more.'"
Thousands of country music fans ran for cover Sunday night as a gunman fired hundreds of bullets at them from a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, officials said.
At least 527 people were hurt, and 59 are dead from the gunfire and ensuing stampede at the Jason Aldean concert, police said.
