Residents in Chickasha hosted a candlelight vigil Tuesday night to honor those who lost their lives in the Connecticut school shooting last Friday.
On Friday, December 14, a gunman opened fire at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, killing 26 people, including 20 children. All of the children were either 6 or 7 years old, according to police.
Members of the Chickasha Police Department, Fire Department, as well as the school district hosted a candlelight vigil at 2301 S. 16th Street in Chickasha Tuesday night to honor those victims.
"I feel like we need to all come together, you know because this world is crazy so we need to come together as a nation and do a lot of prayer," Breanna Woods said.
This is just one of several similar events across our state.
