We will keep updating this post as we get more information about vigils and memorials tonight, and as we hear about events previously scheduled that are postponed or canceled. —OW staff

NOTE: City Commissioner Patty Sheehan has requested that Orlandoans postpone any outdoor vigils scheduled for this evening as law enforcement is stretched thin dealing with the aftermath of the shooting. From Sheehan's personal Facebook page:

Tonight at Lake Eola Park: Shows I Go To hosts a candlelight vigil.
"Tonight we will be at Lake Eola from 6pm - 8pm with candles, flowers, guitars, and open hearts. We'll be meeting at the park on the peninsula, near Panera bread. Please come and share your story, please come and cry and sing and show your love for Orlando and everyone impacted by this weekend’s horrible events. "
