ST. JOHN PARISH -- A special candlelight vigil was held Friday to remember the deputies killed in an ambush attack.

Hundreds of people showed up for vigil at the St. John Parish government complex.

Some were family members of the fallen deputies, others just members of the community who wanted to show their support for their sheriff's department and the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect them.

The vigil had an overwhelming sense of sadness, but people here say they'll get through this tragedy together.
