San Jose vigil for 9 VTA employees after mass shootings

SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) – The San Jose community continues to mourn the loss of nine VTA employees following Wednesday’s mass shooting.

Another vigil took place in the town hall on Sunday evening.

“It’s just awful and to be honest, there are no words to describe the feeling.”

Members of the San Jose community are still trying to come to terms with the tragic shooting of nine VTA employees early Wednesday morning.

Allie Hughes organized this “Community Day of Healing”. She says this is home to many people.

“My office actually shares a parking lot with the VTA, so it was very close,” she said.

She said she doesn’t know the victims or their families – but she is there for them.

Mary Celestin also attended the event. She says it’s still hard to accept that this happened.

“It is really upsetting to see San Jose make the national headlines,” said Celestin.

But as she looked at the dozen of flowers, candles, and notes on this memorial, she has some hope.

“What I really love about San Jose is that people always come together when something happens.”

They said they plan to continue supporting the victims’ friends and family as best they can.
