Sunday marked one year since the mass shooting in Virginia Beach killed 12 people, injured four and a police officer.
Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the city moved anniversary events online or encouraged individual activities.
At Building 2 of the Municipal Center, the city created wreaths. On the day of the anniversary, people paid their respects by leaving more flowers and mementos.
Virginia Beach held a virtual memorial service later that afternoon.
