Church members and mothers of victims pray for peace in Port Arthur

Posted:

A group of Port Arthur church members prayed and called for a truce between two gangs in the city.

Police have declared war against the east side and west side groups.

An officer said recent shootings in the city are in retaliation following a fatal shooting March 30 at The Old School Shack.  Marcus Senegal, 29, was killed in the shooting.

The mothers of the recent shooting victims, including Senegal's mother, say they are praying for a truce.

18-year-old Telly Joyce was arrested on a probation violation for being at The Old School Shack when Senegal was shot.  Port Arthur police are calling him a person of interest in the shooting, but he has not been charged.
