EL PASO, Texas (AP) - A memorial for the people killed in a mass shooting in El Paso is under way.
Thousands of people attended the event at a baseball stadium in downtown El Paso that featured 22 luminarias, one light for each of the victims.
Addressing the crowd, El Paso Mayor Dee Margo said: "Hate will never overcome our love. Hate will never overcome who we are."
He added: "We are a bilingual family ... We are successful because of our people. There is nowhere in North America like El Paso-Juárez."
The man charged with the shootings is believed to have posted an anti-immigrant rant online and told police he targeted Mexicans.
