PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Faith leaders are joining members of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England in a candlelight vigil in Maine for the victims and the community of Colorado Springs, Colorado, following a fatal shooting at a clinic there.

Three people died and nine others were injured in the shooting Friday.

The vigil has been scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Monument Square in Portland.
