HIGH POINT, NC -- A group called the Mothers of Murdered Offspring is holding a national vigil Tuesday for the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the High Point Police Department are joining that group.
Capt. Mike Kirk said it's a good opportunity for the department and anyone else who wants to join to stop, pray, and be thankful for what they have.
The vigil will be in memory of the 20 children killed in Newtown, Conn., but the High Point PD will also remember newborn Khan Frazier, who police say was murdered by his father Brian Frazier within two weeks of his birth.
"I think having just recently been through that and having to work that scene we can find a closeness to those men an women [in Connecticut] who had to go in there as first responders and their families as well," Kirk said.
