Vigil held in Lexington park for Las Vegas victims

A crowd gathered Wednesday evening at a Lexington park to remember the dozens of people killed by a gunman in Las Vegas.

"They come together like so many of us have, to listen to what is a grand American tradition," said Lexington mayor Jim Gray.

The people who came to Triangle Park took time out of their evening to remember the people killed in Las Vegas Sunday night at a country music festival.

The common theme of the evening was togetherness, and love.

"And we really need to just put aside all of the selfish beliefs that we have and have had for so long and come together and do something good and right," said Cassandra Gurney.

After the vigil the city turned the lights in Triangle Park red, white, and blue in honor of the country music fans who were killed in America's latest mass shooting.
