A day after a mass shooting left 10 people dead in San Jose, officials said the focus now needs to be on how to support those personally touched by the tragedy.
On NPR's Morning Edition, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said the community is feeling "numb."
"We've got families who have lost loved ones, and co-workers who have lost friends," said Liccardo. "And I think our task now is to do everything we can to support them, and to help them begin the path of healing."
