Accent Signage, the Minneapolis business where employee and Richfield native Andrew Engeldinger fatally shot seven people in 2012, has released a statement three days before the first anniversary of the shooting: 

On September 27, 2012, many of our friends and co-workers tragically lost their lives. The loss has had an unimaginable impact on many families and has taken a tremendous toll on our company.  

Our employees have shown incredible resolve this past year, which has allowed Accent to persevere under incredibly challenging circumstances. We also wish to thank our customers, vendors and the community for the outpouring of support we have received in the past year.

This Friday marks the one-year anniversary of the horrific events that forever changed our lives. Out of respect for our co-workers and the families of those who lost loved ones, we will be observing the solemn day privately. We would ask that you keep our fallen colleagues, their families, and our staff in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
