CLOVIS, N.M. -- Even though there's a lot of chaos throughout the Clovis community, the mood was much more different inside a Clovis church. People gathered to remember the victims of Monday's deadly shooting.

Two library employees, Wanda Walters and Krissie Carter, were killed. Four other people were hurt and hospitalized in Lubbock, Texas.

At the Church of Christ in Clovis Wednesday night, there was a night of song, prayer and reflection carried a message of love. Some people there said it's times like this that are more important than ever for the community to come together.

"I think it's very important for our community to come together, especially at times like this because we've never had something like this terrible and tragic happen here," Marcia Caldera said. "And it's real shocking."

"You just feel compassion for the people and really disbelief that it all happened," added Wesley Myers.

"I've lived in Clovis all my life. I was born here, never moved away, and it's a special place to me. And so when we hurt, we kind of all hurt, and this has been a big shock for our town," Mary Ann Cable said.

Despite the uneasiness throughout the community, people tell me they're still coming to come together as Clovis Strong.
