Commemorating Victims of San Bernardino Terror Attack on 7th Anniversary of Mass Shooting – Orange County Register

On Friday, December 2nd, the seventh anniversary of the mass shooting, victims of the 2015 San Bernardino terrorist attack were memorialized online and in person.

On December 2, 2015, Environmental Health Services employees were attending an external training event at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino when an employee and his wife opened fire on them in a briefing room. The shooting killed 14 people and injured another 22. Both gunmen were later killed in a firefight with police.

The San Bernardino County government held an online memorial service on the county’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages at 10:55 a.m. Friday — the time of the 2015 attack on the Inland Regional Center. Thirteen of the 14 people killed in the attack were county environmental and public health officers.

Flags were raised at all county facilities on Friday, and county officials asked those who live or work in San Bernardino County to do the same with their flags.

In June, the county unveiled the long-awaited $1.3 million memorial to victims of the attack.

At 10:55 a.m. on Friday, about two dozen people were standing at the Curtain of Courage memorial

San Bernardino County Fire Department Volunteer Chaplain Samuel Roberts led a prayer honoring the victims and first responders of the 2015 attack before a minute’s silence was observed.

“As the celebrations begin, may we continue to love each other and try to quell the hatred that caused such an incident,” Roberts said.

Later in the day at 3:00 p.m. in the campus Peace Garden, Cal State San Bernardino will hold its annual Memorial Day event to honor those killed on December 2, 2015, five of whom were CSUSB alumni. The garden features a five-sided base, with a plaque on each side with the name and graduation information for each alumnus.

The garden, located on the south side of the college’s Chemical Science Building, opened in 2016. A bell on the pedestal will ring 14 times, once for each victim of the 2015 attack.
