NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Dozens of people gathered in downtown Nashville Sunday for a vigil to remember the victims of last week’s attack in France.
The event, which was organized by the Honorary Consul of France, was held in Public Square Park.
“Just trying to express how we feel. To let them know that our thoughts and prayers are with them. There is not a lot that can be said that is original, but it is heartfelt and we stand with them in solidarity,” said Michael Shumate, who attended the vigil.
A total of 84 people were killed and 202 were injured Thursday after a Tunisian man drove a truck through crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice.
The massacre ended after police killed the armed attacker. He has been identied as 31-year-old Mohamed Bouhlel.
