Fear is affecting attendance at a Buddhist temple in San Bernardino located less than a mile from last week’s shootout between police and the armed couple involved in the mass shooting at Inland Regional Center, a temple leader said Sunday.
Sokha Chan, the abbot at Khmer Buddhist Society of San Bernardino, said followers are scared.
He usually sees about 30 to 35 people at the temple on prayer days, but there we’re only 20 on Thursday, he said.
“People still come, but less,” said Chan. “They (are) scared.” Courtesy SBSun
