Peace, safety and hope … those were some of the themes at Sunday afternoon’s prayer walk in downtown Columbia against recent gun violence downtown.

Mayoral candidate Tanya Heath says about 20 people from five different faiths participated.

There have been eight shootings in downtown Columbia since September 18.

Heath says prayer can have an impact on the spirit. She says participants want to support the efforts of downtown Columbia businesses, CPD and community leaders to create the best Columbia for all.
