Family members who have lost loved ones to violence, gathered in New Bedford’s West End Thursday night, taking part in a vigil to mark “Survivors of Homocide Victims Awareness Month”.  Among those present was Fernanda Gonzalez of New Bedford.  Her son, Alberto “Tito” Gonzalez, was killed by gunfire in 2003.  She’s urging an end to violence in city neighborhoods.
