HARRISBURG, S.D. (AP) - Members of the Harrisburg community came together in prayer as they deal with emotions stemming from a school shooting.

Several Harrisburg faith leaders set up a Thursday night prayer service at Harrisburg High School to give residents an opportunity to heal together. People prayed, lit candles and wrote messages on large rolls of paper draped over folded tables.

Pastor Jess Daum tells the Argus Leader newspaper that Harrisburg residents need to find peace and comfort in one another. He says, “When one little part of our community hurts, we all feel it.”

Sixteen-year-old Mason Buhl has pleaded not guilty in adult court to attempted murder in the Thursday shooting of high school Principal Kevin Lein. Lein suffered a minor arm injury and has returned to work. No students were hurt.
