Puerto Ricans held somber vigils and prepared to bury many of their own after authorities said nearly half of those killed at a gay nightclub in Florida had ties to the U.S. territory.Officials said that while it's still unclear how many of the 23 Puerto Ricans killed were born on the U.S. mainland or had moved there from the island, they expect many of them to be laid to rest in Puerto Rico in the coming days.The shooting early Sunday at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando that killed 49 people has shaken Puerto Rico's gay community and shocked the U.S. territory as a whole.At least five of the victims were from Ponce, Puerto Rico's second largest city.Two of the other victims had been vacationing in Orlando.
