BAKER -  With heads bowed and hands joined a small group of people gathered Wednesday morning at Memory Park in prayer.

The prayer vigil was held to take a stand against violence.

This come nearly two weeks after three teens were gunned down inside a party at the Baker Civic Club.  Another teen was also shot and is recovering.

City and community leaders have been in talks since the murders to come up with a plan to prevent senseless tragedies like that from happening. 

Possible solutions on the table, security requirements for private venues and a change in curfew for minors.
