For the victims of Thursday’s massive fire in Indianapolis, a vigil is set for Saturday.
The only gunman, identified by police as 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole, killed eight people and injured five others at a FedEx facility near Indianapolis International Airport before committing suicide.
First Vigil for 1 p.m. (ET) at Olivet Missionary Baptist Church; according to schedule, a skyscraper is planned for Krannert Park in Indianapolis at 7 p.m. for reports.
Among the eight victims were four Sikhs, which led to the withdrawal of support from Indiana Civaka sik and questions about shooter goals.
“Our hearts and prayers are with their families, and we are in contact with community leaders, government officials and law enforcement to learn more,” Coalition Executive Director Sijeet Kaur wrote in a statement. “Although we still do not know the purpose and identity of the radiation, we hope that the authorities will continue a full investigation — including the possibility of bias as a factor.”
This was the third shooting in Indianapolis this year. Five people were killed in a family dispute in January, but four others were killed in another domestic incident in March.
Hole once worked and was at FedEx was flagged by the police feared by his family for his potential violence.
