“Till the end of the road, we can’t let go,” sang the crowd of mourners together at the vigil. The surviving victim who directed officers to the bodies is in critical condition.

Police are hoping he recovers so they can get more information.

“It does not make any sense. Two people dead that didn’t have nothing to do with nothing. It’s maddening, we got to stop,” an attendee at the vigil told Local 4.
