Memorial service planned for victims killed at Yountville veterans home

YOUNTVILLE (KRON)-- - Loved ones and staff at a Yountville veterans home are mourning the lives of three employees who were killed during a hostage incident on Friday. 

The victims, Christine Loeber, Jennifer Golick, and Jennifer K. Gonzalez Shushereba, worked at the Pathway Home, which is a nonprofit that helps veterans reintegrate into civilian life.

The services offered include counseling clients with post-traumatic stress disorder, officials said.  The gunman was identified as 36-year-old Albert Wong, who was a former Army rifleman.

Wong has served a year in Afghanistan in 2011-2012.  Sources say Wong had trouble adjusting to regular life after he returned from Afghanistan and had been kicked out of the treatment program designed to help him. 

To honor the victims, a memorial service will be held on Monday, March 19 at the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at 100 California Drive, Yountville, CA  94599.
