MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Several West Virginia University groups have joined Morgantown businesses and faith-based organizations in planning a candlelight vigil in response to the weekend tragedy at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

The vigil is scheduled for Thursday night at Woodburn Circle on the WVU campus.

WVU says in a news release that Morgantown Mayor Marti Shamberger is scheduled to speak. Counselors will be available at the vigil.

The deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history on Sunday left 49 people dead, along with the gunman.
