Candlelight vigils were held for the eight victims of a mass shooting at an Indianapolis FedEx facility. Vigils were expected to continue throughout Sunday.

Several community members were joined by Mayor Joe Hogsett and other officials on Saturday to gather to offer their sympathy and prayers.

Speakers shared their own experiences on gun violence and called for officials to take action.

Authorities were able to identify the victims of the shooting; their ages ranged from 19-to-74-years-old.

“Even though we may not have known them, we do love them,” Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett (D) said. “We do miss them, and in their name, we continue on.”
