A memorial service was held Saturday at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks to pay tribute to another one of the victims of the November 7th Borderline Bar mass shooting. 

Twenty-three-year-old Justin Meek graduated from Cal Lutheran in May with a degree in criminal justice.

A huge crowd filled the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts plaza for a vigil to remember the victims of Wednesday night’s shooting rampage at a Ventura County nightclub which left 12 victims, plus the gunman dead.

There was music, words of remembrance, hugs, and tears during the event. It’s one in a series of events and vigils taking place in the region to remember those who died, as well as those who were injured.
