KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- More than 100 family members and friends gathered Tuesday night for a candlelight vigil to remember the four men killed on Monday night. The vigil was filled with emotion, shock, sorrow, tears and prayer.
Dozens gathered to support each other through a tough time, as they mourn the loss of four friends shot and killed at a home near 36th and Oliver.

Three of the victims are now identified by loved ones as Mike Capps, and brothers Austin and Clint Harter. They’re men the group of people at the vigil say were amazing fathers and loyal friends.
Clint and Austin’s mother was obviously emotional, but wanted to thank everyone by her side.
“I think it’s wonderful, exciting and it supports me and makes me feel good because I know I got them, like my kids had them,” said Kelly Harter.
“We just wanted to say thank you to everybody who came out and supported the family. It’s a tragic event for anybody to go through this, especially the ones that it hits close to the most,” said Melissa Bryant, a friend of the victims.
Family members say they plan to have another vigil Wednesday night at the scene of the crime, starting at 6 p.m.
