Photos: Boston Vigils For Marathon Victims

As the investigation continues in the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line, vigils to honor the victims took place all over the city Tuesday night.

Hundreds gathered on Boston Common and the Arlington Street Church, among others, to mourn and pay their respects. Here’s what the scene looked like last night (All photos by Dominick Reuter for WBUR).
