The Tucson community is invited to show support at the prayer vigil for Jacob Dindinger who is fighting for his life after he was shot in the head last weekend after responding to a call at Silverlake Park, where a man in an SUV approached the AMR ambulance and shot Jacob along with another EMT. Afterward, the man then drove to a house fire, where he shot at bystanders and firefighters.
