CLOVIS, N.M. (KFDA) –
The Clovis community gathered tonight to remember the two women who lost their lives in the Clovis-Carver Public Library shooting.
Residents, military personnel and first responders all gathered with the same message: they are #ClovisStrong.
Raymond Mondragon with the Chamber of Commerce said they will not let the shooting define them.
“We’re better than that,” said Mondragon. “This community is a community for family and that’s what this community stands for.”
Concerns regarding false threats circulated last night, and some residents feel like the community is afraid.
“The city has kind of been on alert status,” said Mondragon. “We’ve been getting calls, people are making threats you know, but we should never live in fear.”
The Clovis Fire Department raised the American Flag this evening and hung banners in honor of Wanda Walters and Krissie Carter, who were killed in the shooting.
