PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - About 200 people attended a Wednesday night vigil at a Portland area church to remember 14-year-old Emilio Hoffman, the Reynolds High School freshman killed in Tuesday’s shooting at the school in Troutdale.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1oXfks7 ) the vigil was connected to a fundraising campaign for the Hoffman family. The goal of $2,000 was quickly passed and almost $8,000 was raised.

Those at the vigil sang songs and lit candles during a slideshow of Tuesday’s events.
