A candlelight vigil is appropriately planned for tonight at Ah-Nab-A-Wen park near the Gerald R. Ford Museum, downtown Grand Rapids.

Last night, 34-year old Rodrick Dantzler single-handedly fatally shot 8 people including himself.  The authorities and three hostages involved in the shooting spree are all unharmed, but two others were shot in the downtown area.  Both victims are expected to make a full recovery.

I just talked with Ford Museum Deputy Director, Jim Kratsas, who has kindly offered free parking for the vigil that begins at 8:30 tonight.
