Hundreds gather to for prayer vigil in Bean Station

BEAN STATION, Tenn. (WVLT) -- More than 200 people gathered at Bean Station City Hall Friday night. They comforted each other, hugging, singing, and praying for those killed in a pharmacy shooting Thursday, and for those still fighting for their lives.

Stephen Lovell and Richard Sommerville died after police say Jason Holt shot them during a robbery. Janet Clift and Alexia Wilson were also shot, and flown to University of Tennessee Medical Center.
