MANOA (KHNL) - People on Oahu gathered to pay their respects and pray for the victims of last week's deadly shootings at Virginia Tech.

Dozens met at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church near the University of Hawaii Sunday. Organizers put together a candlelight vigil to pray for each victim, and anyone at the University of Hawaii who are affected by the shootings.

"I'm here tonight to show my love and support for the victims and the families of this terrible shooting, said Diana Kunz, a church member.  "It touches everyone's lives even as far away as we are across the continent and across the ocean."

Churchgoers prayed for healing for the families.
