Families of Yountville veterans home shooting victims file wrongful death suit


It’s been one year since the horrific shooting at a Veterans home in Yountville where three women were killed by a man who had recently been discharged from a residential treatment facility. 

A remembrance ceremony will be held on Saturday in their honor at Veterans Memorial Park. 

The shooting happened at the Yountville Pathway Home and outside hangs four hearts, one for each victim: Executive Director Christine Loeber, Clinical Director Jennifer Gray Golick, and Psychologist Jennifer Gonzales Shushereba, who was 7 months pregnant.

The smaller heart is for her unborn daughter 

Larry Kamer, spokesman for the Pathway Home said, “It’s hard to believe it has been a year, it has been a very challenging year.” 

The veterans home was closed after the shooting and shuffled patients to other facilities saying that it was too difficult to go back after Albert Wong, 36, shot the women who had been part of his care at the Veterans Home of California. 

Wong then shot himself in the head and died. 

Families of the victims have recently filed wrongful death suits against the state and county.
