Video: All races came together for powerful New York City candlelight vigil

Hundreds gathered Sunday to show support for two New York City police officers, Wenjian Liu & Rafael Ramos, killed in the line of duty.

Local ABC affiliate Channel 7 News covered the vigil where the people sang songs and lit candles for the fallen heroes.

“So many people from Brooklyn, from the tri-state area, here to support these officers and this community in this time of mourning. Most of the people showed up, they had candles. They had been singing ‘This little light of mine,’ ‘Go tell it on the mountain,’ reporter Carolina Leid said. “Each and everyone asking for peace.”

Twitter was awash with images from the multiracial gathering.
