Vigil Held For Slain Officers

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A vigil has been held in the neighborhood where three Pittsburgh police officers were gunned down.

Thursday evening's candlelight vigil honored officers Eric Kelly, Stephen Mayhle (MAY'- lee) and Paul Sciullo II (SHOO'- loh). They were killed April 4 when they were shot as they responded to a domestic call.

The Stanton Heights neighborhood is home to many police officers, firefighters and paramedics.

The vigil folloed a potluck dinner held at an elementary school.

Twenty-two-year-old Richard Poplawski is jailed on homicide and related charges in the shooting.
