Fund Set Up For Payton Thomas

A ceremony Friday evening honored a young girl recently killed in a tragic accident. 10-year old Payton Thomas died late last month when a friend accidentally shot her as the two were playing. The community gathered Friday to pay tribute at Ruffner Elementary School where Payton was a third-grader. Payton's parents said they're thankful for the support of the entire community. They also said they have set up a fund to help with expenses. Anyone can donate to the Payton Thomas Memorial Fund at the United Bank along Virginia Street East in Charleston.
