PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) - Four hours from the Florida high school where 17 people were shot and killed, hundreds of people gathered in a park to rally against gun violence and call for stricter gun laws.

People lit candles in memory of the Parkland victims at the demonstration Saturday night in St. Petersburg, on Florida's Gulf Coast. They called for legislative action on the state and federal level to end gun violence.

It comes as thousands of students, parents, teachers and neighbors held signs and pushed for gun control legislation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Anger over the massacre Wednesday also has led to calls for walkouts, sit-ins and other actions on school campuses nationwide that are aimed at pushing lawmakers to pass tougher gun laws.

Sunny skies and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Sunday. We'll be mostly sunny and just about as warm on Monday. A modest cooling trend and the chance for Sierra showers is ahead for Tuesday.
