Two prominent Evansville gangs recently called for a ceasefire to stop the violence, and Wednesday night the community prayed together to maintain the peace.
There was a candlelight vigil put on by the christian outreach group BOSS Academy, which stands for brothers out saving souls.
A small crowd gathered at the downtown market on Lincoln.
Community activist Henrietta Jenkins says the cease fire between the Wagg Block and Savage Life gangs was, in her words, a success.
She also says while the 30 day truce ended Monday, the two sides continue to maintain peace.
