TAMPA, Fla (WFLA) — Moms Demand Action is hosting a vigil and walk in Ybor City after two people were killed and 16 others were injured over the weekend.
The event will start at Centennial Park at 5 p.m. on Wednesday.
“We felt that we needed to do this, there are a lot of people in our community that are hurting,” said Gail Powell-Cope with Moms Demand Action.
Powell-Cope asks the community to come out in support of the victims who were killed and the survivors who lived to tell the story.
“It’s just a weird kind of mix of emotions when something like this happens, and it hits close to home, there’s just no words for it, it’s horrendous,” Powell-Cope said.
