Community gathers to remember gun violence victims

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - A somber service tonight at All Saints Episcopal Church.

It was the 4th annual Utah vigil to end gun violence. About 100 people sang and prayed and lit candles to reflect all the victims of gun violence.

One of the people there was Carolyn Tuft who lost her 15 year old daughter Kirsten in the 2007 trolley square shootings.

Tuft told Good4Utah “The ripple effect that goes out from 1 bullet when it leaves the chamber, it destroys lives. It’s a ripple effect that keeps going and going. I don't want anybody else to go through that.  So it’s important to keep reminding people.

This group claims that every 31 hours, a person in Utah is killed with a gun, whether it’s accidental, murder or suicide.
