On Monday, Santa Barbara County residents gathered at La Casa de la Raza in eastside Santa Barbara to mourn the lives lost in the three mass shootings that happened last week – the three victims killed at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy on July 28, the 22 killed at Walmart on El Paso, Texas on Aug. 3 and the nine killed at Ned Peppers Bar in Dayton, Ohio on Aug. 4.
