Shereen Rahamim (RAH'-huh-meem), wife of company owner Reuven Rahamim, spoke publicly Monday for the first time since the shooting at Accent Signage Systems. She thanked the city and the people of Minnesota for their support the day of the shooting.

Reuven Rahamim, four employees and a UPS driver were fatally shot at Accent Signage on Sept. 27; the last victim died Oct. 10. The gunman, Andrew Engeldinger, killed himself in the building.

Shereen Rahamim says the people inside the building are getting back to work and getting the sign business going again.

Minnesota Public Radio News reports Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak was on hand to mark the occasion.
