August 4, 2011, 6:21 AM
RAPID CITY, SD -
Hundreds of people turned out in Rapid City for a candlelight vigil after three police officers were shot, and one of them killed.
The crowd gathered Wednesday night at a church near the scene of the Tuesday afternoon shooting that killed 28-year-old Officer James Ryan McCandless and injured 27-year-old Officer Nick Armstrong and 39-year-old Officer Tim Doyle.
People left candles, flowers and cards, and Mayor Sam Kooiker spoke, calling for the community to pull together and rally around the officers' families rather than seek to place blame for the incident.
The alleged shooter, 22-year-old Daniel Tiger, died in a hospital Wednesday afternoon. Some in the crowd Wednesday night offered prayers for him.
