Vigil for Sikh temple shooting victims

Posted:
MADISON (WKOW) -

Dozens gathered at the Capitol in Madison Sunday for a vigil for victims of the Sikh temple shooting in Oak Creek earlier in the day.

Organizers say it was an impromptu gathering, for people in Madison to respond to the tragedy as a community.

"I thought that it was important that people here had an opportunity to gather to share their grief and to share the feelings that were going on inside all of us," said vigil organizer Callen Harty.

Harty said he's dedicated to peace and hopes coming together during tragedies like these will help inspire ideas to change the culture of violence in the world.

"Our heart goes out to them we're with them in spirit in solidarity and all we can do is keep praying for a better world and keep trying," said Carrie Riddle, of Madison, one of the people who attended the vigil.

Many gathered for another vigil Sunday night at Cathedral Square in Milwaukee.
