TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Members of the community came together tonight to remember the two victims from the shooting this weekend.

Cory Saunders was shot and killed while trying to help anyone during the house fire.

"Anybody that knew Cory loved him," a cousin said. "Cory was a special person."

Jennifer Fells, who is the presumed dead body that was recovered in the burnt home, had several co-workers and family members talk about the kind of person she was.

"She was an amazing person, full of life, a great co-worker and an amazing friend," a colleague said.

The community members also are keeping Jacob Dindinger in their thoughts. Dindinger is the 20-year-old EMT who was shot in the head. He is still in the hospital in critical condition.

"Jake is the person that everyone should aspire to be," his uncle said. "He is one of the most beautiful people you could ever meet in your life."
