SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - In the wake of a mass shooting in Shreveport that left multiple juveniles hurt, a prayer vigil is being held in support of the victims.

Terrence Winn’s organization, PIPE (Priority Intention Practical Exchange), is hosting a prayer vigil Thursday, Jan. 26 at 4:30 p.m. at Quik Pack Grocery (formerly Tumanella) on the corner of David Raines and MLK Drive (2001 David Raines Rd.). Winn spent more than 30 years in Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola and was released in 2020. Since then, he has been working to make Shreveport a better place.

“Why we gotta go through this? Why do we gotta take families through this? No one comes out a winner in that situation,” Terrence Winn of PIPE, tells KSLA during his interview.

“You got to love on them as tough as you can, and you got to listen to them. They got pain that they’re dealing with, its a lot of trauma, but no one really wants to listen to them,” says Winn when asked how to reach these young people.

The Shreveport Police Department Pastors on Patrol will be working with PIPE to host the vigil. They will be praying for a decrease in violence and an increase in peace, cooperation, and unity as well as blessings for the city’s new administration.
