Two Teens Killed After Car Crashes Into Building

“This is my church. These are my people,” said Rev. Henry Brown, standing beside a broken brick wall.

Earlier that day, a speeding car carrying three teenagers crashed into that corner building in Hartford, killing two, and injuring one

A photograph, candles, roses, balloons and personal items had already been placed to create a memorial. Brown, of Hartford, and recently back from a trip to Washington, DC, had just finished leading a group of shocked and emotional teenagers in prayer in front of the wall. They had come separately, but were now joining hands in prayer.¬†They prayed for the deceased. They prayed for their families. They prayed for their friends. And they prayed for themselves. “People come together to show love and support,” Brown said, before leaving with some of the teenagers to visit the home of one of the victims of the crash.
