HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
Members of the community gathered for a candlelight vigil in Huntsville Friday night. They wanted to remember the members of the Sikh community killed in a shooting rampage in Wisconsin.
"The overall message that we are trying to give to the community is we all need to come together on this," said Rajinder Singh.
Singh said that people from all religious backgrounds called to express their sympathies and showed up Friday night to show their support.
The group had a moment of silence to honor and remember the six lives that were lost Sunday.
That's when officials said Wade Michael Page, a white supremacist opened fire on members at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. The gunman took his own life after he was shot and wounded by another officer. Three more victims remain in the hospital.
Huntsville residents like Dan Tudor said that people need to encourage one another during times of tragedy.
"It's support your neighbor," Tudor said. "It doesn't matter what race, color, or creed you are. This is still America and these people are just as much American as I am."
Doctors said two of the three victims hospitalized are improving. The other victim is still in critical condition.
