PORTAGE, Mich. (AP) - Hundreds of people gathered for a motorcycle riding event to raise money for relatives of victims and survivors of the Kalamazoo-area mass shootings.

WOOD-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Xp13aC ) that more than 400 motorcycles were registered for Saturday’s Perry Harley Davidson Community Memorial Ride in Portage.

Proceeds will be distributed through the Kalamazoo Community Foundation.

On Friday, 45-year-old Jason Dalton was ordered to stand trial for the Feb. 20 random shootings that killed six people and left two others wounded.

Authorities said the shootings were carried out between Dalton picking up riders as an Uber driver.

One of the survivors is 14-year-old Abigail Kopf. Her father, Gene, directed traffic at Saturday’s fundraiser and said the community support “shows one rotten person is outnumbered by a lot of good people.”
