On Sunday, a Richmond church held its first Sunday services, since a group of teenage boys opened fire on the congregation a week ago.

Worshippers packed the New Gethsemane Church Of God In Christ -- the site of last Sunday's shooting. Three teenage boys walked into the church and fired five shots, wounding two brothers. Church goers at the New Gethsemane Church of God In Christ in Richmond wanted to regain their confidence in attending Sunday services after a brazen shooting took place there a week ago.

On Thursday, police arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with the shooting, but the investigation is ongoing and they are still looking for two other suspects.

On Feb. 14, at about 12:30 p.m., three males in black hooded sweatshirts entered the church, fired five shots at two brothers. The shooting left a 14-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man injured.
