CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (WJW)– The Cleveland Heights community came together Thursday night to honor the victims of Tuesday’s horrific school shooting in Texas.

The Boulevard PTA in the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District planned a candlelight vigil at the Coventry Peace Campus.

“We need action, we need change, and we need to stand up and fight for these kids,” said parent Krsti Bidinger.

The group huddled under umbrellas as they listened to speakers and shared their grief.

Earlier on Thursday, students at other local schools, including Bay High School, held walkouts to support student safety.

Nineteen students, all around the age of 10, and two adults were killed when a gunman stormed Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday. The 18-year-old suspect entered the building “unobstructed” through an apparently unlocked door.
