In photos: Vigils and protests after Texas mall shooting
Vigils were held Sunday evening outside a mall in Allen, Texas, where a mass shooting occurred a day earlier, and inside a packed-out Dallas-area church to honor the eight victims killed in the massacre.
The big picture: As Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined thousands of people at the Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church's prayer vigil, a group of protesters gathered outside to demand reforms to gun laws.
