COLUMBIA, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — The Howard County mall where two people were fatally shot last weekend held a candlelight vigil for the victims Thursday night.

Hundreds, including friends and workers, meet at an outdoor memorial at The Mall in Columbia to remember Brianna Benlolo and Tyler Johnson. Benlolo and Johnson were employees of Zumiez, a skateboard gear shop, and were fatally shot Saturday by a gunman who then shot himself.


Teddy bears, pictures and dozens of flowers were placed at the memorial as friends and family friends shared memories of both of the victims.

The mall re-opened Monday with memorials for Benlolo and Johnson. Two memorial funds have also been set up to honor their lives.

Police say they’ve found no connection between the shooter, 19-year-old Darion Aguilar, and his victims.
