In addition to the vigils above, the L.A. Times has also compiled a few more. A prayer service and vigil, sponsored by the L.A. chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Baitul Hameed Mosque at 11941 Ramona Ave. in Chino.
Another vigil, organized by the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence, the Violence Prevention Coalition of Greater Los Angeles, and Women Against Gun Violence will take place in West Hollywood at the fountain at the corner of Santa Monica Blvd. and Holloway Drive. Participants are asked to wear orange.
