Vigil Held For Victim Of Oregon School Shooting


By KMVT News

Troutdale, Oregon (CNN) A candlelight vigil was held Tuesday night in memory of Emilio Hoffman - one week after the 14-year-old was killed in a school shooting.

Hundreds of classmates, teachers and other community members attended the vigil at Reynolds High School in Oregon.

Police say 15-year-old Jared Padgett shot and killed Hoffman, then wounded a PE teacher, before taking his own life at the high school last week.

Police haven't named a motive and say there is no link between Padgett and his victims.

A public funeral service for Hoffman is scheduled for this Sunday.
