BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - A mural has been painted to honor lives impacted by gun violence.

The mural is behind Ceritano’s Ristorante on Main Street in Blacksburg.

It lists the names of the victims who were killed in the mass shooting in 2007 with the words “End gun violence, we remember.”

The artist wanted to show Blacksburg remembers the lives lost at Virginia Tech in the shooting there 14 years ago, but also those who have been killed across the nation.
