Beech Grove holds vigil for FedEx capturing victims – WISH-TV | Indianapolis Information | Indiana climate
BEECH GROVE, Ind. (WISH) – The Beech Grove community on Sunday evening honored the eight people killed in the FedEx mass shootings Thursday evening.
The host was Mayor Dennis Buckley and his faith-based round table on the steps of the town hall. One of the victims, Samaria Blackwell, was educated at Beech Grove.
Buckley said he has known the Blackwell family for years and Samaria is a caring person.
“She was one of our smart young citizens called home and I’ll never question why,” said Buckley.
The vigil was one of several in central Indiana and across the country on Sunday.
