A day after a shooting at a grocery store left 10 people dead in Boulder, scenes of remembrances for the victims popped up across the city.

Bouquets of flowers were placed by a makeshift fence put up around the parking lot outside of the King Soopers store where the shooting took place. 

Community members also delivered flowers at a roadblock near the Boulder police station, too. Officer Eric Talley was among the 10 people who were killed Monday.

Vigils planned to honor Boulder victims

According to a post in a Boulder subreddit, a vigil organized by community members is planned for Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. at the Boulder County Courthouse. Organizers have asked for those attending to wear masks, donate candles and flowers, and for those able to contribute words, music, or other art to do so.

On Thursday evening, another vigil is planned to take place at Fairview High School. The event is organized by the activist group Colorado chapter of Moms Demand Action.
