Panic at Vigil For Victims of Oxford Shooting Amid Reports of Medical Emergency

A reported medical emergency at a vigil in Oxford, Michigan, cased panicked mourners to flee on the evening of December 3, three days after a shooting at a local high school.

Crowds had gathered in downtown Oxford on Friday evening to pay their respects to the four students killed by the 15-year-old gunman, and those wounded in the attack at Oxford High School.

According to local reports, an individual fainted during the vigil, creating panic in the crowd.
