Charlottesville Community Holds Memorial For Virginia Athletes Killed In Mass Shooting

A devastated community in Charlottesville, Virginia came together on Saturday to honor Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr. and D’Sean Perry. Dozens of athletes, friends, family and other community members were overcome with tears as they gathered at the memorial to remember the three University of Virginia football players who were shot and killed on a charter bus after returning from a school field trip, ESPN reports.

Photos of the three student-athletes were displayed on stage while the Chandler, Davis and Perry families sat in the front row.  The entire football team sat in the rows behind the families while athletic director Carla Williams and other administrators took their seat on the stage. The tribute also included a performance from The MLK Community Choir, as well as Grammy Award-winning gospel singer CeCe Winans, who sang “Goodness of God.”
