SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – At the moment when shooters unleashed terror on San Bernardino a year ago, county employees will remember their fallen colleagues with silence.
Later on Frnyciday, community members will gather to remember the 14 people killed and 22 wounded with speeches from religious leaders and law enforcement.
The hardscrabble city of 216,000 people east of Los Angeles is preparing to mark the anniversary of the Dec. 2 attack by husband-and-wife assailants on a holiday luncheon for county health employees. Investigators say the attackers were inspired by the Islamic State group.
Police will hold a 14-mile memorial bicycle ride that will end near the site of the shooting. A brief memorial service also will be held there.
