On Friday, a former army rifleman who had been treated for combat stress burst into The Pathway Home, a post-traumatic stress disorder program at the Veterans Home in Yountville. Armed with a rifle, he killed three women and then fatally shot himself. As the community mourns the loss of life, authorities continue to seek a motive for the shooting.
