GRAMBLING, LA (WAFB) -

Members of the Grambling Track and Field  Team appeared on Twitter Sunday to pay tribute to two Southern University killed in an April shooting.

The tweet, which has garnered more than 500 retweets since its posting on May 13, shows Grambling Track team members wearing shirts with the names of the two shooting victims, Annette January and Lashuntae Benton, on the back. They are also seen holding up sign that reads "Did you know... There is still a far-larger amount of black people killed by blacks than any other race! Let's STOP Black on Black VIOLENCE."

 Annette January, one of the victims in the early April shooting, was a member of the Southern Track and Field Team.
