SIU holds vigil for Las Vegas shooting victims

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- Dozens gathered at a candle light vigil Monday night at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in honor of the Las Vegas shooting victims. 

Students and faculty came together for a moment of silence and period of reflection after a shooting massacre left at least 59 people dead and more than 520 others injured. 

"They go to a concert thinking they're going to have a good time, and many did not get to return home to their families and friends," said SIU Dean of Students Jennifer Jones-Hall. 

Jones-Hall told News 3 she wanted to provide a safe space for students, staff and community members to reflect. She also reminded students of available resources and counselling services on campus.
