(KHNL)  A group of people gathered at Honolulu Hale Tuesday night to remember a Waipahu woman who was shot and killed by her ex-husband last week.

A bell sounded every seven and a half seconds for every woman affected by domestic violence.

The Hawaii State Coalition Against Domestic Violence organized the vigil in memory of Yolanda Crawford.

Last Monday, Crawford was shot and killed by her ex-husband in Waipahu. He also shot her 14-year old daughter who survived.

After shooting the two, Crawford's ex-husband shot and killed himself.

"The message is that we don't want this to be a private issue. Domestic violence should be a public issue," said Sue Green a domestic violence educator.

"Survivors and victims of domestic violence shouldn't be afraid to come out and tell someone what's going in their homes," Green said.

Green also says there are many local agencies that offer help to victims of domestic violence.

She says the biggest challenge for many is to get the courage to seek help.
