(( Danny Overstreet's life ended Friday night inside a predominately gay nightclub in downtown Roanoke.
Overstreet was shot and killed and six others were wounded... when Ronald Gay allegedly pulled out a gun inside the Backstreet Cafe.
Since then-- hundreds in the gay community have come together in a show of support for Overstreet and his family.


But the incident has also drawn the interest of anti-gay groups.
Whatever happens... Vinton police chief Herb Cooley says he's prepared.
