Local Community Holds Vigil For Wisconsin Temple Shooting Victims

A small, tight-knit community in Brazos County got together to remember the victims of the shooting at the Sikh Temple in Wisconsin.

Dozens of people gathered at the Shri Omkarnath Temple in Navasota. The Bryan and College Station Sikh Association and the Hindu Society of Brazos Valley organized the Candlelight vigil.

Amongst the crowd were some community leaders including College Station Mayor Nancy Berry.

Candles were also lit in the design of an American flag. Members of the temple said it symbolizes that the nation's strength comes from different cultures coming together.

“That's a great feeling to have that America is a free country. People have rights to fearlessly practice their religion and faith if they want to, and our strength is in our diversity,” said Waheguru Singh, a College Station resident.
