Special thanks to TKC readers and community insiders sending notes our way.
NOTE: TKC WILL NOT SHARE SNUFF FOOTAGE OF THE SHOOTING NOW DISPLAYED ON SOCIAL MEDIA SITES!!!
The scary postage stamp video is out there and a lot of people have sent it our way as well but everyone should determine their own comfort level when sharing footage of people gunned down. As always, this blog focuses on community and policy impact . . .
An important and tragic milestone for the community . . .
"Hundreds of people walked along Central Avenue in support of the families who lost loved ones in Sunday's deadly bar shooting."
The street was shut down for the massive vigil . . .
There are a lot of fundraising efforts, here's one shared by a young KCK leader:
"We as a community need to help the victims in our community. Please donate to this family a victim to the mass shooting here in KCK. Fundraiser by Sarah Harrison : Help with Medical Expenses"
Another look at the crowd as more people arrived to share their sympathies throughout the night . . .
