Ojai residents attended a vigil in Libbey Park Wednesday to recognize the victims of acts of violence — the third such event in the past five weeks.

Nigel Chisholm organized Wednesday’s event in honor of eight police officers killed in Dallas and Baton Rouge.

Ventura County Sheriff’s Office (VCSO) officials estimated that at least 50 were in attendance.

Chisholm has been a regular at these events. He helped organize the vigil to honor victims of the shooting at Orlando’s Pulse dance club and attended a Black Lives Matter rally July 8 in remembrance of two black men killed by police officers.
