El Paso Strong Memorial Service honors mass shooting victims

National

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – People from both sides of the border gathered in El Paso Wednesday night to remember the 22 lives lost at a Walmart there.

Thousands of people streamed into the baseball stadium in downtown El Paso. The ceremony officially commemorated those killed by a gunman, who police say confessed to driving from the Dallas area to target Mexicans.

Twenty-two stars and nine circles formed by luminarias adorned the field in honor of the El Paso shooting victims and the nine people killed in the Dayton, Ohio mass shooting.
