On Sunday, mourners gathered across the metro to remember the victims of Thursday's deadly workplace shooting in Minneapolis.

Six people, including the 36-year-old gunman -- Andrew Engeldinger, died. Investigators say Engeldinger returned to the office with a gun and opened fire after being terminated from his position that morning.


OWNER, FOUNDER REMEMBERED

Owner and founder of Accent Signage Systems, Inc., 61-year-old Reuven Rahamim, was remembered during the morning services at Bethel Synagogue in St. Louis Park, where he was a board member for several years.

Rahamim is described as a charitable and compassionate man, and he is survived by his wife and three children. He will be buried in Israel.


FUNERAL SET FOR RAMI COOKS

Services for 62-year-old Rami Cooks will be held on Sunday afternoon at Bet Shalom Congregation in Minnetonka.

Cooks, who was described as Rahamim's right-hand man, died on Friday morning in the hospital from injuries he sustained during the Thursday afternoon shooting.

Cooks is survived by his life partner and seven children.
