SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

One local organization is holding a vigil Monday in response to the Las Vegas shooting.

We just spoke with First City Network's chairman about the decision to organize something so quickly.

"I woke up at 2:30 this morning to the news and was just shocked and felt like I did the day of 9/11. Just empty. But I've got to do something,” said First City Network Chairman Michael Ploski.

Monday's vigil will be held at Savannah's LGBT Center on Bull Street. It is from 9 to 10 p.m.

All community members are invited to attend.

    A Savannah woman is giving back to the homeless community and making them look good in the process. Besty Rothman hosted her third annual event helping at the old Savannah city mission on Bull Street today. She and a team of volunteers gave free haircuts, manicures, warm meals, and much more to people who stopped by.  Rothman, a licensed cosmetologist, said she organized the event to honor her late sister and to give back to the community.
