On Friday, a hostage situation at Pathway Home in Yountville ended in tragedy. 36-year-old Albert Wong took five employees of the veterans facility hostage, later killing three of them as well as himself.

As of today, the doors of the facility remain closed and locked. And the future of the center remains uncertain.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, an exhaustive review of security protocols is in effect. The residents have been moved to other facilities while officials discuss the future of the program.

“We don’t know whether that building is going to be a place that people want to live in, want to work in, after what happened Friday,” said spokesman Larry Kamer.

“It’s not like people can just forget what happened there, move on, and work and have their group sessions. It’s got bullet holes in it.”

Wong had been treated at Pathway Home, but was asked to leave a few days before the incident for unknown reasons.
