OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) — Hundreds of people gathered Monday night to mark the one-year anniversary of a shooting rampage at a Wisconsin Sikh temple with a candlelight vigil in the very parking lot where two of the six victims died.

Amardeep Kaleka, the son of one of the victims, said the turnout was greater than organizers anticipated.

“People could have stayed home and watched TV but they wanted to be here together in the name of peace,” Kaleka said.
