CHESAPEAKE, Va. — The City of Chesapeake plans to hold a vigil Monday night to honor the victims of the Nov. 22 mass shooting at Walmart.

Six people were killed and several others were injured when a man opened fire at the store on Sam's Circle before turning the gun on himself. The victims ranged in age from 16 to 70 years old.

According to a tweet from the city, the vigil will begin at 6 p.m. on Nov. 28 at City Park (900 City Park Drive).

Monday's vigil is just one of many that have been happening since the tragedy.

On Thanksgiving, a crowd of people gathered around a makeshift memorial in front of the Walmart where the shooting took place. People could be seen hugging and consoling each other.
