LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The love and support for a UofL student who was killed in a mass shooting last weekend continues.

A vigil will be held for Savannah Walker on Saturday at noon at Ballard High School where she graduated. A tree will be dedicated in her memory in the school's nursery.

The 20-year-old was killed early Sunday morning during a mass shooting inside the Tim Faulkner Gallery in the Portland neighborhood.  According to Savannah's father, his daughter saved lives pushing people down before taking a shot directly to the chest.
