A vigil was held Sunday for the victims as hecklers interrupted Ohio governor Mike DeWine as he offered sympathy to the community. “Do something, do something!!” the crowd demanded as the governor shared his own heartbreak of losing his daughter 26 years ago.
Both incidents happened at the triggers of assault rifles.
