Norfolk community writes compassion cards for Virginia Beach shooting victims

NORFOLK, Va. - The Norfolk community is remembering the 12 innocent people killed during Friday's mass shooting in Virginia Beach.

Compassion cards

From 5-8 p.m. Monday night, people from across Hampton Roads were invited to write "compassion cards" at Coaster Coffee located at 8418 Tidewater Drive in Norfolk.
