This youth atelier is in collaboration with Cole’s Place Events, a place This is no stranger to gun violence. After a deadly double shooting in the event space last summer, the owner closed the establishment.

“Our students can practice with the handgun before going to the shooting range,” said McGahee. “Tthis allows them to train comfortably and practice these fundamental skills during class.
The youth safety workshop is February 26 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Cole’s Place on West Kentucky Street.
