SAN DIEGO, Calif. (KGTV) — A candlelight vigil was held in Pride Square on Sunday evening to honor the victims of the shooting inside a Colorado Springs LGBTQ nightclub.

Dozens gathered in Hillcrest lighting candles, bringing flowers and sharing words of comfort. But many expressed it's a routine this community has done far too many times.

"At least 5 lost their lives because they were living as their true selves," one participant shared with the group.

"I fear the chance of losing my life just for celebrating the fact of who I am," shared another.

Participants took turns speaking and embraced on another.
