Mourners Remember Mass Shooting Victim at Memorial

Family and friends of San Bernardino mass shooting victim Tin Nguyen were set to gather for a memorial service Saturday morning in Santa Ana.

Mourners will converge at St. Barbara Church at 8 a.m. PT to remember 31-year-old Nguyen, one of 14 people killed when a husband and wife opened fire at a holiday event at the Inland Regional Center on Dec. 2.

Nguyen was born in Vietnam and lived in Santa Ana. She worked as a food inspector with the county health department and planned to get married in 2017. Her fiancé's birthday was the day before she died.

The FBI is investigating the massacre as an act of terror. FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday the two shooters -- Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik -- were radicalized well before Malik came to the U.S. on a fiancée visa and had discussed jihad and martyrdom as early as 2013.

Yvette Velasco, 27, of Fontana was the first victim to be laid to rest on Thursday. Funerals for 58-year-old Damian Meins and 46-year-old Harry Bowman were held Friday.

Victims Isaac Amanios and Shannon Johnson will also be laid to rest Saturday.
