Copley classmates sing, release balloons during vigil for Copley shooting victims

COPLEY TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Copley-Fairlawn High School students held a candlelight vigil Monday night for victims of Sunday morning's shooting rampage in their community.

Two of the victims were students at the high school.

During Monday night's ceremony, the students sang and released dozens of balloons into the night sky.

Danielle Koloniar was best friends with 16-year-old Autumn Johnson, who was one of the seven killed by the gunman.

"I kinda feel like we all have a litle bit of closure," Koloniar said, "but I'm still never gonna be the same without my best friend."

As of Monday night, Copley Police had not released the name of the other Copley student who was killed, because all of her relatives had not been notified. However, many students at the vigil knew her.
