Candlelight vigil for victims of synagogue shooting
RICHLAND, Wash. —
Multiple people of different faiths stood together in Richland this afternoon one week after the devastating shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
About 200 people attended a candlelight vigil at John Dam Plaza to honor the people killed and injured.
People of Christian, Muslim and Jewish faiths attended which organizers say shows how supportive and loving the Tri-Cities community is.
"They're all shocked by what happened last Saturday at the synagogue in Squirrel Hill. They just want to show solidarity for the Jewish community here,” Debbie Greene, an organizer of the event.
The shooting killed 11 people. Six were wounded.
The alleged shooter, Robert Bowers, had a history of anti-Semitic comments on social media.
