"More than a hundred people marched from St. Michael's Catholic Church to the Alamodome on Saturday to hang around 2000 t-shirts in front of the parking lot. 

Each shirt represented a life lost to gun violence in Bexar County. Most shirts had a name, age, and date of death but there were also shirts that simply said "another life stolen." Those represented suicide victims.

"We think it will be stunning,” said COPS/Metro Southeast Side leader Sonia Rodriguez, and reflect a community “fed up with gun violence.”
