Gallery: Memorial held in Horizon City for student killed in Walmart mass shooting

On a warm, high desert night, Horizon High’s Emperor Stadium became a place of peace and remembrance as hundreds attended a memorial service for Javier Amir Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, a former HHS student who would have been a sophomore this year, was among the 22 people killed Saturday morning at the Cielo Vista Walmart mass shooting.

Far from the violence and terror of that day, family, friends, teachers, residents and dignitaries attended the service to celebrate Javier’s life and to console each other.

Rodriguez’s family has started a GoFundMe account to assist in the costs during their hour of need.  To donate, click here.
