Hundreds attend two vigils in Boston

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON ( -- Hundreds of people joined together at two vigils in Boston Tuesday night to remember those killed and injured in the Boston Marathon bombings.

During a vigil held at the Boston Common, attendees sang "Amazing Grace" and wrote messages of love and peace on a large sign that read, "Boston You're My Home."

Hundreds remembered the spirited 8-year-old Martin Richard during a vigil in his Dorchester neighborhood.

Martin is one of three people killed in Monday's bombings.

Krystle Campbell, a 29-year-old Medford native, was enjoying the race with her best friend, hoping to get a photo of the other woman's boyfriend after he conquered the last mile.

A third victim has been identified as a female graduate student at Boston University and a Chinese national. Her name was not released Tuesday.

Over 170 other people sustained injuries, some requiring amputations, when bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon just before 3 p.m.
