Jeffrey Watts, who served with Wong in Afghanistan, says he told him through texts and phone calls that he'd been "put out on the street without a treatment plan" after multiple "run-ins with staff and other patients at the VA home over racial disparities". He served in active duty from May 2010 to August 2013 and was deployed to Afghanistan from April 2011 to March 2012.

Pathway Home, a nonprofit that leases space on the campus of the largest veterans home in the USA, has been closed since the rampage on Friday.

President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday morning: "We are deeply saddened by the tragic situation in Yountville and mourn the loss of three incredible women who cared for our Veterans".

Gonzales Shushereba was seven-months pregnant.

On Monday, the Napa County Sheriff's Department said it received no reports that the combat veteran showed troubling signs of violence before the deadly hostage situation.

When he learned that Loeber had been taken hostage, Turner hoped her natural empathy and critical thinking skills could resolve the standoff, he said.

Jennifer Golick's husband Marc Golick and her mother Lani Gray spoke during a press conference Monday in St. Helena.

"She's holding up. I get anxious about her", Dugan said.

"Realize this is a really hard day", Yountville Mayor John Dunbar, a longtime Pathway Home board member, told reporters at a news conference Saturday. "Exactly what failed is something I know law enforcement is interested in and we are very interested in as well". The largest veterans home in the nation cares for about 1,000 elderly and disabled vets. Larry Kamer, a Pathway spokesman, told the San Francisco Chronicle the directors of the program, which treats veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars with mental trauma, are reviewing security protocols and added that the facility may never reopen. "She was a beloved mother, sister and daughter, colleague and friend", he said.

Jags LB Paul Posluszny retires after 11 seasons
Posluszny was a two-time victor of the Bednarik Award and a one-time Butkus Award recipient while playing for the Nittany Lions. He started 95 of the 100 games in which he played for the Jaguars and led the team in tackles five times.

When Wong became a teenager and Sherr and her husband worked full-time, they chose to put him in foster care.

Family friend Tom Turner said Loeber would be helping others understand and deal with the tragedy if she were still alive.

"Jennifer was adored by all who knew her and will always be remembered for her unconditional love and incredibly giving heart", the family statement said.

Officials did not return repeated messages from The Associated Press on Sunday and they have not answered questions about whether concerns about Wong were reported to authorities.

Investigators haven't publicly identified the weapon Wong used to kill the three mental health workers. A neighbour told a reporter he hadn't lived there for a couple years, but declined to say more.

The California Statewide Law Enforcement Association, a union that represents a variety of public safety employees, including the nine officers at the veterans' home, released a statement Friday afternoon urging the California Department of Veteran Affairs to begin arming Yountville officers. Jerry Brown had offered the state's employee assistance program, which had already sent counsellors to the campus. But Imbasciani said he would take input from every reliable source, including law enforcement.

Martin Epstein, a veteran who lives at Pathway, came by the memorial to pay his respects. Lampkin says Wong would obsess about relatively minor conflicts, such as someone owing him money or not pulling their weight. "It's because of the war".

The ordeal ended when police stormed the building and found Wong and three of the facility's employees - Jennifer Golick, 42, Christine Loeber, 48, and Jennifer Gonzales, 32 - dead. Sheer explained to the AP that Wong experienced a number of symptoms characteristic of PTSD.
