One concert goer from Tucson is still fighting for her life after the Las Vegas shooting. Savannah Sanchez's family and friends are coming together to show their support by holding a vigil Tuesday night at Mission Manor Park. 

Sanchez is a Tucson native who graduated from Desert View High school.

She was shot at the route 91 harvest festival, and is now on life support.

Her immediate family is with her in Las Vegas, and in an emotional Facebook post, a friend says, "they are planning on keeping her on it {life support} for five days, let's keep praying everyone."

Sanchez is studying visual journalism at Ventura College in California.

Her friends say she is an independent and strong woman.

One of her friends has a Go Fund Me page set up to help cover medical expenses, but the family is also holding a vigil for prayers and support, and they'd love to see the community come together to honor one of our own.
