Small Florida city hon­ors 5 vic­tims of bank shoot­ing

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

Res­i­dents in a small Florida city gath­ered Sun­day for a vigil to honor the five women killed in a SunTrust branch mass shoot­ing.

Peo­ple lit flash­lights and cell­phones in­stead of can­dles to honor the vic­tims be­cause heavy rains in Se­bring pushed the vigil in­doors. Florida Gov. Ron DeSan­tis had made plans to at­tend but can­celed, say­ing the weather had af­fected his trav­els.

Four SunTrust em­ploy­ees and a cus­tomer were killed in the bank’s lobby Wed­nes­day. Af­ter a stand­off, po­lice say, Zephen Xaver, 21, was ar­rested and faces five counts of pre­med­i­tated mur­der.
