Mourners wept and lit candles at a vigil in Reno Sunday held to honor the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando over the weekend.

Several hundred gathered outside Our Center, the newly opened LGBT community space for Northern Nevada.

Among those who spoke was Mayor Hillary Schieve.

"Right now, it is just having that moment of silence, really remembering the victims, showing that this is a community that's strong and resilient," she said. "But it's important for Reno to do this to show support nationwide."
