OVERLAND PARK, Kansas (AP) – Three people fatally shot by a white supremacist at two Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City are being remembered with a memorial at one of the shooting sites.

Family and friends gathered Tuesday for a private dedication of the memorial at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas.

That’s where 69-year-old William Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Underwood, were killed in the April 2014 attack. Fifty-three-year-old Terri LaManno was the killed at the nearby Village Shalom retirement home.

The sculpture is attached to an outside wall and features three waves of intertwined steel strands that cast different reflections as the sun moves. It also includes a plaque with pictures of the three victims.

Frazier Glenn Miller Jr., of Aurora, Missouri, was sentenced to death in the shootings.
