As the Waukesha, Wisconsin, community grapples with the horrible tragedy at Sunday’s Christmas parade, residents honored the victims with a vigil Monday.

At least five people were killed and more than 40 others wounded when an SUV plowed into a crowd gathered at the Milwaukee suburb's annual holiday parade over the weekend.

An 81-year-old man, a 79-year-old woman and a 71-year-old woman were among the five killed, police said at a news conference. The other victims were two 52-year-old women. Members of the “Milwaukee Dancing Grannies” club were among those killed, as was an employee of Citizens Bank.
