PHOTOS: Americans mourn latest mass shooting tragedy

“More Love. Less Hate.”

That was the heartfelt message on the screen during a prayer vigil at Joy Metropolitan Community Church in Orlando, Florida, hours after the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

The gunman, Omar Mateen, killed 50 club-goers and critically injured dozens more at Pulse, a gay nightclub south of the city’s downtown early Sunday.

From North Carolina to New York, from Connecticut to Texas, Americans held vigils for the victims.

Here are some images from the Sunday evening gatherings as a nation mourned the latest mass shooting.
