UCSB Vigil

May 26, 2014 by  

UCSB Vigil, Memorials were scheduled for Monday night in Los Angeles to honor the victims of a shooting and stabbing rampage in Isla Vista that left six victims dead and 13 others wounded.

The University of California, Los Angeles and Westlake High School in Thousand Oaks planned to host memorials at 8 p.m.

“Please join us in remembering the tragic loss that has affected the lives of so many of our friends. As students of the University of California, we stand in support of those on our sister campus,” a UCLA Facebook event page stated.

All six fatally wounded victims were identified Sunday as University of California, Santa Barbara students.

The Westlake memorial planned to honor shooting victim Veronika Weiss, a 19-year-old who graduated from the campus in 2013.

UCLA attendees were asked to bring candles, lighters or help the campus origami club make paper cranes “to bring to the vigil as a gesture of peace,” the Facebook stated. More than 2,000 peopled RSVP’d “yes” to the event.

Several thousand grieving UCSB students and community members attended a candlelight vigil Saturday night, which began around 7:30 p.m. and was held in Storke Plaza on the UCSB campus.

The event was also organized through Facebook.
