By Tracy Manzer

Residents fed up with the violence that has plagued their North Long Beach neighborhood plan to hold a prayer vigil this Saturday.

The public is encouraged to join in the vigil, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the corner of 60th Street and Myrtle Avenue.

"The purpose of our coming together is to seek God's assistance in stopping the violence that is currently occurring in this residential area," Pastor Leon Wood said in a statement Tuesday.
