Six years ago on Dec. 2, 2015, shots erupted in the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, leaving 14 dead and others injured at a holiday party.

The victims were Robert Adams, 40, Isaac Amanios, 60, Bennetta Bet-badal, 46, Harry Bowman, 46, Sierra Clayborn, 27, Juan Espinoza, 50, Aurora Godoy, 26, Shannon Johnson, 45, Larry Daniel Kaufman, 42, Damian Meins, 58, Tin Nguyen, 31, Nicholas Thalasinos, 52, Yvette Velasco, 27, and Michael Wetzel, 37.

The attackers Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, an American who worked five years for the County of San Bernardino, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, were killed in the shooting.

They were armed with assault rifles and semi-automatic handguns as they walked into a holiday party at the Inland Regional Center in the 1300 block of S. Waterman Avenue and began shooting. They were later killed in a shootout with police.

Thursday in San Bernardino, the community remembered those lost with several events.
