On Monday, funeral services for Luke Hoyer, 15 and Alaina Petty, 14, will be held in Coral Springs. On Monday evening, hundreds of people are expected to attend a rally at the Palm Beach Court House calling for an end to gun violence.

On Tuesday morning, Carmen Schentrup, 16, and Peter Wang, 15, are set to be laid to rest. Later that evening, public viewings are scheduled for Stoneman Douglas’ athletic director, Chris Hixon and football coach Aaron Feis. Both were killed as they shielded their students from a hail of gunfire.
