A large crowd is expected at a town hall meeting in Seal Beach next week to discuss police response to a deadly hair salon shooting rampage.

Thursday, a private funeral was held for Victoria Buzzo, one of eight victims that were killed.

At next Thursday's town hall meeting, officials will also provide an update on the investigation and counselors will discuss how the community is coping.

Scott Dekraai is charged with the killings.

Prosecutors say Dekraai was involved in a child custody dispute with his ex-wife, Michelle Fournier, who worked at the salon. She was one of those killed.

How to help

The Fannin family established a memorial fund to benefit all the families of those killed in the shooting. Supporters can donate online at www.salonmeritagefund.org.

The city of Seal Beach, the Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce and Watson & Associates announced the establishment of the Seal Beach Victims' Fund account at the Bank of America at 208 Main St. in Seal Beach. Donations may be mailed or delivered to the Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce or the Bank of America with checks made payable to the Seal Beach Victims' Fund. Credit cards will also be accepted.

Additionally, those wishing to host a fundraiser, special event or related activity are encouraged to do so in coordination with the Chamber of Commerce, which is functioning as a clearinghouse for all such events.
