BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - The New York community center where 14 people were killed in a mass shooting Friday says it’s “stricken with grief” over the massacre.

The American Civic Association says in a statement it shares “this grief with the victims’ families, our community and the entire nation.” The Binghamton center says it’s aiding authorities in the investigation of the shooting.

Police say a gunman barricaded the back door of the community center with his car and then opened fire on two receptionists a room full of immigrants taking a citizenship class Friday morning, killing 13 people before apparently committing suicide.
