New Bedford Gathers to Remember Newtown Victims

Local residents trying to cope with Friday’s tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, sought solace inside the walls of Grace Episcopal Church Monday night.

Religious leaders from New Bedford and surrounding communities led about 200 people in an inter-faith vigil for the victims of Friday’s school shooting. Fairhaven’s Tom Cabral has family with children in the Newtown School System. Cabral tells WBSM News, there was only one place he wanted to go, when he learned of the tragedy.
