Below Zero to host vigil for Orlando massacre

CINCINNATI -- Below Zero Lounge will hold a vigil at 7 p.m. Monday to mourn the tragic mass shooting over the weekend at a nightclub in Orlando that left 50 people dead and 53 injured.

The ceremony will have singers and a local pastor in attendance. Below Zero owner Nigel Cotterill hopes it will be a positive step forward following Saturday night's tragedy.

"I just hope the community continues in the direction they're going and don't panic and react and stop doing what they normally do," Cotterill said. "They should just continue with their life because if they do start changing then the terrorists have won."

Another local nightclub, the Dock, held a vigil with candles and a moment of silence Sunday night.

 

Below Zero is located at 1120 Walnut St. in Over-the-Rhine.
