Meanwhile, on Friday evening, Collierville residents and town officials gathered to remember the events of one year ago when Olivia King was killed and 13 others injured during a mass shooting at a Kroger, Corinne Kennedy reports in this story.
“The hardest thing about the last year is to reconcile the fact that she's gone, and the undeniable fact that she shouldn't be,” said King's son, Wes King, who called for action to prevent future tragedies like this.
