ALBERTSON - It was an emotional afternoon at the Shelter Rock Library today as relatives of the victims of the 1993 Long Island Rail Road massacre gathered to view a documentary about the shooting.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the train shooting that killed six people and wounded 19 others. Passenger Colin Ferguson opened fire indiscriminately as he walked down an LIRR car until he was tackled by other passengers.
After viewing the documentary, some family members of the victims spoke about how the shooting fits in with national discussions on gun control today.
The documentary will be released later this year to coincide with the massacre's December anniversary.
