The Nashville community is mourning the loss of the four people who were killed in the Waffle House mass shooting.
Police have identified the victims as Taurean Sanderlin, Joe Perez, DeEbony Groves and Akilah Dasilva. All of the victims were under 30 years old.
A vigil was held for them Monday night at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Antioch.
Sanderlin, 29, was from Goodlettsville and was an employee at the Waffle House where the shooting took place.
Perez, 20, was shot and killed while he was standing outside the restaurant.
Groves, 21, was fatally wounded inside the restaurant. Groves was a senior at Belmont University.
The university's student paper, Belmont Vision, tweeted a release from Belmont confirming her death.
The newspaper is also collecting tributes for Groves.
During a prayer service held Monday, Groves' family, friends and fellow students prayed and sang in the chapel on Belmont's campus.
Belmont University freshman Noah Brobeck did not personally know Groves but said he felt compelled to attend the service and pay his respects.
"It was really heartbreaking. I didn't go in there expecting to cry, and I cried about three different times. It was just really moving that the community got together and honored her," Brobeck said.
Belmont University President Bob Fisher sent out this message to parents:
It is with great sorrow that I inform you that a member of the Belmont community, senior DeEbony Groves, was killed yesterday morning in the Waffle House shooting that occurred in Antioch, a Nashville suburb. DeEbony was majoring in social work and lived on campus. Like you, I am shocked and devastated by how such senseless violence has taken the life of this young woman, an individual full of immense potential. Please join me in extending our thoughts and prayers to her family and friends as they come to terms with unimaginable grief.
Belmont is offering counseling and other support services to members of our campus in the coming days. Individuals seeking support are encouraged to come to the office of Counseling Services on the second floor of the Gabhart Student Center or call 615-460-6856. In addition, this morning’s Chapel service will be a time of prayer for DeEbony's family and friends.
Dasilva, 23, was inside the Waffle House when he was shot. He later died from his injuries at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Dasilva was a musician that performed under the name Natrix Dream. Nashville R&B artist Kiya Lacey remembered the artist on Twitter, thanking him for his support.
Two shooting victims remain hospitalized at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. They have been identified as 21-year-old Shantia Waggoner and 24-year-old Sharita Henderson. Both are in stable condition.
Two other victims were treated and released from TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center, including 29-year-old James Shaw Jr., who stopped the shooting. Shaw is credited with saving many lives and was hailed a hero by Metro Police, Mayor David Briley and thousands of people on social media.
Shaw was grazed by a bullet during the shooting and burned his hand as he wrestled the gun away from the shooter. He set up a GoFundMe page for the other victims. The fundraiser can be found here.
Pat Warner, director of public relations and external affairs for Waffle House, said company officials met with all of the victims' families on Monday. The company is pledging support for the families in any way that they can, including financial assistance.
"We will support them in any way we can," Warner said.
