HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The Orlando, Florida mass shooting at a gay nightclub prompted vigils and rallies all across the nation and even some here at home.
But local LGBT groups feel the response from city leaders could've been more supportive.
James Robinson, CEO and Founder of Free2Be, said he was hurt by not seeing more city officials especially Huntsville's mayor standing with him during this difficult time.
Sunday, Free2Be held a vigil for the 49 victims killed.
Robinson said they quickly jumped into action showing support for those injured and remembering those killed.
Although he acknowledged the mayor's statement on the shooting, he said the Mayor Tommy Battle should have done more by marching and praying with them that night.
"I thought where are all the people that I work with regularly supporting events and other causes in this city. The LGBT community was wounded across the nation. I woke up this morning feeling very alone and very disappointed," said Robinson.
Battle responded to Robinson and released the following statement:
