San Jose vigil for 9 VTA workers after shooting
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) – The San Jose community continues to mourn the loss of nine VTA employees after Wednesday’s mass shooting.
Sunday evening, another vigil was held at the town hall.
“It is absolutely horrible and to be completely honest with you there are no words to describe this feeling.”
Members of the San Jose community are still trying to come to terms with the tragic shooting of nine VTA workers early Wednesday morning.
Allie Hughes hosted this “Community Healing Day”. She says it affects close to home for many people.
“My office actually shares a parking lot with the VTA, so it was very close,” she said.
She said she did not know any of the victims or their families – but that she is there for them.
Mary Célestin also attended the event. She says it’s still hard to accept that this has happened.
“For me to see San Jose on the national headlines for this is really shocking,” Celestin said.
But looking at the dozens of flowers, candles and notes left at this memorial – she has some hope.
“What I really love about San Jose is how every time something happens people come together.”
They said they plan to continue supporting the friends and family of the victims anyway.
