POWAY, Calif. -- Memorials, made up primarily of flowers, continue to grow outside the Poway synagogue where police say a 19-year-old man opened, fire killing a woman and wounding three others Saturday.
Since the shooting, people have felt compelled to visit, often dropping off flowers in honor of the victims. "I just felt I had to pay my respects to her and her family," Alison Burningham, a recent visitor, told FOX 5. Burningham said she attended the same schools as Lori Kaye, the woman killed inside the synagogue.
Others knelt at the memorial and said a prayer. Steve Freed, who came from Oceanside, said he just wanted to visit the site and reflect. "I just spent 15 minutes looking at the flowers. It was really really hard; it's been very painful for me," Freed said.
