    Leicester Vigil for Wisconsin Shooting Victims


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter amusiyiwa attended a vigil on Sunday in the English city of Leicester for victims of the recent fatal shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. Organised by the Leicester Council of Faith, representatives from several religions attended the ceremony outside the city's town hall. "They said the reason they held the vigil was to show solidarity with the victims and survivors of the shooting," he said. "They also emphasised that although we are different we should respect each other." Six people were killed in the shooting, while the gunman was later shot dead by police officers.
