“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.
