Employees Say Accent Signage Will Continue After Shooting

The business will stay open after six employees died at the hands of a former co-worker, the Star Tribune reported.

The Minneapolis business where a fired employee killed six others and himself Sept. 27 will continue.

That was the word Monday from family members of Accent Signage founder and owner Reuven Rahamim, the Star Tribune reported, in spite of the deaths:

"Their loss has taken a tremendous toll on our company and had an unimaginable impact on our families," [Shereen Rahamim, wife of Reuvan Rahamim] said. "We take great comfort in the community's support during this troubled time. A fund established at Wells Fargo bank by the Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Association will help the victims' families. ... We would encourage people to donate to that fund and other similar victims' funds."

A deal with an Eden Prairie firm, GreenMark Enterprises, remains in place, the Star Tribune said.
