Community members held a vigil for a man who was gunned down in broad daylight on East Ferry Street Friday afternoon.

Sources said that the victim could be connected to Riccardo McCray who is a suspect in the City Grill shooting that took the lives of four people last month.

Sources also said the death of this man could be in retaliation for that mass shooting.

Now, people are remembering the most recent victim with a vigil, while also pleading with the community to help make the violence stop.

Bishop Perry Davis founder of the Stop the Violence Foundation said they started the vigil with a prayer.

"Today we come out to pray for the victim and the victim's family of Friday's shooting," Davis said.

Bishop Perry Davis said they are also praying to stop the violence across the Queen City.

"All these senseless killings in Buffalo. We have to continue praying and ask God to changes things. It's getting ridiculous," Davis said.

But Davis said it's going to take prayer and much more, including communication.

"A lot of people know what's going to happen before it happens. So, if you have an open line of communication maybe we can prevent this from happening," Davis said.

But other community leaders including Pastor Jenny Davis said it has to be a city-wide effort to make any kind of positive change.

"If we join in as a community together and bind together a city wide revival has to hit Buffalo. I'm talking about all the church leaders, all the police departments, all under one umbrella and just bring calm to the city of Buffalo," Davis said.

Until everyone comes together, Davis said he will continue working to make people aware of these tragedies and what the communities must do to make a change.

"We want to instill in our children now before it's too late, that you can't just go out kill each other," Davis said.
