A look at the many names and events in honor of Choo Diah and others who have passed away in the wake of the school shooting

In the past two weeks, more than 70 people have died and at least 200 were wounded in a mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.

In the aftermath, families of those killed and wounded have come together to honor the life and legacy of Choos’ parents and grandparents.

The vigil has taken place at Choo’s memorial hall in downtown Denver.

The hall is one of several memorials in honor the four Choos who have died.

There is also a statue of Chos’ grandfather at the school.

A group of people, including two women, hold up balloons as they take part in a vigil honoring Choo and the others who were killed in the shootings at Choos memorial school in downtown Hartford, Connecticut, June 23, 2018.

“It’s not a matter of mourning for the ones who have been gone,” said Nancy Bessette, the principal of the Choos Memorial Hall.

“The goal is to remember Choos, and his grandmother, and her grandfather, and to show our respect to those who were there and to all those who had loved ones who were impacted by this.”

There is no word on when the vigil will end, but organizers are encouraging people to stay for the duration.

They also hope to hold a vigil in the coming days for the five children and two adults who were in Choo Jr.’s class that day.

The three students were killed by a lone gunman who killed one teacher and wounded another before killing himself.

Police said the shooter was also a former student who was previously incarcerated for weapons offenses.

On June 20, a vigil for the students was held at the Choo School in Hartford.

The memorial hall is open to the public and is surrounded by flower beds and candles.

It also has a small memorial to Choo.

In honor of the three victims and the other people who were injured, the hall holds a memorial service for all the victims of the shooting at Chos memorial school.

Bessettes said the memorial will be held June 23 at 6:30 p.m. and is free.

She said the community will gather there to pay respects to the victims.

The Connecticut State Police have not yet confirmed any suspect in the shooting, but they said they have been contacted.

A vigil for victims of Monday’s shooting is planned for 7 p.M. at the Hartford Memorial Center, 614 West Street.

The Hartford Courant has more on the shootings.

More information can be found at the Connecticut State Department of Education website.
