Brandon Williams was killed in the Kelly’s Pub mass shooting two years ago. Now, his life is being commemorated on Sept. 25 — the South Bend Common Council passed a special resolution Sept. 13 in honor of Williams to establish a day of remembrance for murder victims.

Two years ago at Kelly’s Pub, 11 victims were shot and one, Brandon Williams, was killed.


His sister Tiara Williams said the last two years have been devastating — but ending gun violence is a way to honor his memory.


“Today is not just about my brother,” Williams said. “Today is about gun violence, period.”
