COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) — The Maryland mall where two people were fatally shot last weekend held a candlelight vigil for the victims.

The vigil for Brianna Benlolo and Tyler Johnson at The Mall in Columbia was conducted Thursday evening. Both were employees of Zumiez, a skateboard gear shop, and were fatally shot Saturday by a gunman who then shot himself.

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

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