Haq Killing at Jewish Federation One Year Anniversary
SEATTLE, Wash. (AP) - Seattle marks a solemn anniversary this weekend.
Saturday is the one-year anniversary of the fatal shooting at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.
The staff of the organization held a small private ceremony Friday. The actual anniversary falls on the Jewish Sabbath.
Federation Chief Executive Richard Fruchter said that is something of a blessing. No formal ceremony will be planned on a day of rest. Survivors of the rampage said they will spend the day reflecting on the life of Pam Waechter, who died in the shooting.
Naveed Haq has been charged with killing Waechter and injuring five of her coworkers in the attack.
He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to 20 criminal charges.
