PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Students, staff, and community members gathered Wednesday night to light nine candles for each of the Umpqua Community College shooting victim at Portland Community College.

They read the name of the victims and held a moment of silence at the Cascade, Rock Creek, Southeast, and Sylvania campuses.

"There's no words you can say to make them feel better, its not going to bring them back. So all I can do is pray and pray for the families,” said PCC student Maria Mendoza

The goal of the vigil was to stand in solidarity with Umpqua Community College.
