There is a clarion call tonight for a nationwide day of prayer.

It comes from Shouter Baptist spiritual leader Wendell Jack who officiated at the funeral service of slain teenager Mark Richards.

Hundreds of mourners spilled from Nella's funeral home onto the cordoned off Duke Street.

Two days of mourning for the Laventille community started today with police still unsure of a motive.
