Community vigil scheduled for 3 killed, 9 wounded in Halloween party shooting

A vigil is scheduled for tonight in the wake of a mass shooting that killed three people and wounded nine others in Long Beach’s Rose Park neighborhood.

Long Beach Councilwoman Jeannine Pearce is hosting the vigil at St. Matthew Catholic Church, which is less than a block from the Tuesday night shooting where a gunman or gunmen opened fire on a crowd at a Halloween party.
