PARK SLOPE — A candlelight vigil Monday night will honor recent victims of violence, including the five police officers killed in Dallas and black men shot by police in Minnesota and Louisiana.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and the Most Rev. Nicholas DiMarzio, bishop of Brooklyn, will hold the vigil at 7 p.m. in Grand Army Plaza along with police officers, religious leaders and community members, Adams said Friday.

The public is invited to "mourn the lives lost and to pray for an end to violence and the healing of community-police relations across the country," Adams said in announcing the event. 

“In times of tragedy, the people of our borough stand in solidarity as One Brooklyn dedicated to the right of all individuals to live in peace,” Adams wrote on Facebook.
