Later today, there will be a big gathering on the City’s southwest side to remember two murder victims.

The families of the victims tell News10NBC there will be a balloon launch to honor the lives of Jahmia Singleton and Reggie Johnson.

They were both gunned down a year ago outside a nightclub and the man accused of shooting them is on trial for murder and assault right. Ralph Strong Junior is also accused of shooting a Rochester Police officer three days after the double murder.

The balloon launch is at 7 p.m. on Colombia Avenue at Day Place.
