About 2,000 people have filled a large church in suburban Denver to honor a student killed while trying to stop one of two gunmen at his Colorado school.

The shootings at the STEM School Highlands Ranch on May 7 killed Kendrick Castillo. Eight were injured.

Robots were lined up outside Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch as people entered in recognition of 18-year-old Castillo’s love of robotics.

Hundreds of Jeeps took part in the procession to what was intended to be a celebration of Castillo’s life. Castillo loved his Jeep and off-roading and was a member of his school’s robotics club with a passing for tinkering.

A kayak was on the stage along with a photo of a Jeep and two sports jackets.

Prosecutors have charged two students with opening fire.
