DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — On March 28, 2018, 23-year-old Breunia Jennings was shot at the intersection of Allen Road and Lake Street.

Monday marked one year since that shooting happened in Dothan.

The suspects were 26-year-old Jamie Towns of Dothan and Dothan community activist Pastor Kenneth Glasgow. Glasgow and Townes were both charged with capital murder.

Recently, Townes was indicted on March 15, and Glasgow remains on bond as he awaits a trial by grand jury.

Monday, Pastor Glasgow honored Breunia Jennings with a moment of silence at the Prodigal Child Project Brunch.

The brunch was held to honor and recognize those who have completed the restoration program a part of The Ordinary People Society (TOPS) organization, of which Glasgow is the founder.

Glasgow says the circumstances and obstacles he has faced has brought growth for him and his organization.

“It’s just really put us in a place where we see God more, and we see his blessings more, and we appreciate it,” Glasgow said. “We don’t take nothing for granted no more, you know, and we just see things in a more valuable and moral aspect than we ever have.”

One of the members of T.O.P. S Pamela Curry said that this test in life has made the family stronger.

“A family always gonna end up with a broken chain somewhere, but tha’st how come you have to fix it until we get it back restored where it needs to be,” Curry said.

“Others they got purposes in life, they got destinies they got to fulfill so don’t get mad at me for trying to fulfill mine,” Glasgow said. “I wish it was different but it’s not it’s my journey.”
