Rainier Beach 'Prayer Walk' Delivers Response To Shooting

Seattle Presbytery


Leaders of the Rainier Beach community had had enough.

A 19-year-old woman was shot and killed, a shooting occurred on the same street the next night, and a "person of interest" in the case was shot by police in California.

About 40 people held a "prayer walk" Wednesday night through the neighborhood where Tanaya Gilbert was killed a week earlier. They marched 1.3 miles, held a moment of silence at the shooting scene and prayed at two churches.

"We want to make a statement that violence in this community is not the final word," said organizer the Rev. Jane Pauw, of Rainier Beach Presbyterian Church.
