LOS ANGELES (AP) - Commencement ceremonies at Santa Monica College were punctuated by a moment of silence in memory of the victims of a deadly shooting rampage that concluded on the campus four days ago.
The school's president, Chui L. Tsang, opened the occasion Tuesday by paying tribute to the five killed.
City News Service reports graduates and their families, along with administrators and faculty, stood and paused for a moment on the campus football field.
Jittery students returned for final exams on Monday.
On Friday John Zawahri shot his father and his brother, leaving their home in flames before shooting at strangers in cars and at the college.
The victims included a campus groundskeeper and his daughter, who was a student at the college, and a woman collecting cans outside the library.
