SAN ANTONIO – The city of San Antonio is remembering an NBA legend Monday night.

A vigil was held at 8:24 p.m. for Kobe Bryant after Sunday's deadly helicopter crash in California.

Many lit candles and shared memories in front of the AT&T Center.

The crash claimed the lives of the Lakers legend, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others.

They were all heading to Gianna's basketball game, leaving Orange County just after 9 a.m.

The trip was expected to be quick; however, around 9:45 a.m., the helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California.
