Photos: Burlington Mourns the Orlando Shooting Victims


A large crowd marched through downtown Burlington on Monday evening to remember the victims of Sunday's shooting in a gay nightclub in Orlando. The shooting left 49 victims dead and many more injured.

Police estimated that between 1,500 and 2,000 turned out to the march and rally organized by the Pride Center of Vermont.

Burlington street band Brass Balagan led the procession from the top of Church Street to the rally at City Hall Park.  Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger, police chief Brandon del Pozo and many other local figures marched.
