Angelenos gathered Saturday evening at the French Consulate in Westwood to mourn those killed in the Friday night terrorist attacks in Paris. The memorial of candles, flowers, flags and homemade signs grew as the crowd of hundreds came to pay their respects, and LAist was there to capture some of these moments. The diverse array of attendees included families with young children, French Angelenos and Americans alike. French musician Louis Gaston punctuated the mood with standards like "Les Champs-Élysées" by Joe Dassin and John Lennon's "Imagine."
