This week will forever be engrained in the minds of San Joseans.

What started as an ordinary day Wednesday ended with nine families saying goodbye to their husbands, fathers, brothers, and best friends. Nine men were gunned down at a VTA rail yard after a disgruntled employee opened fire following a union meeting.

The shooter, Samuel Cassidy, committed suicide after deputies intervened.

Here is a look at how San Jose mourned the nine lives lost in a tragedy that adds the city’s name to a growing list of those with mass shootings.
