Candlelight vigil marches through Charlottesville

Marchers paused for a moment of silence to honor those killed Saturday.

— -- Hundreds of people flooded the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia on Wednesday night in a peaceful, candlelight vigil for the victims of Saturday's violence surrounding a white nationalist rally.

Heyer, 32, was killed on Saturday afternoon when a car plowed into a group of counterprotesters who had come to Charlottesville to rally against the "Unite the Right" group. Nineteen others were injured in the car-ramming. Two police officers also died when their helicopter crashed while observing the violence on the ground.

There was also a rally held in Philadelphia on Wednesday night. The march, dubbed "Philly is Charlottesville" by organizers according to ABC6 in Philadelphia, marched down Broad Street and into Center City. About 2,000 people attended the rally, according to ABC affiliate WPVI.

"It's shameful that our president hasn't denounced what happened, 100 percent," participant Kate Sunbeen told WPVI. "So we are here to say, we don't support that."
