KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — A Kalamazoo museum is opening its doors as a place of reflection and peace for those affected by the killing of six people in and around the city.

The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts is waiving its usual admission fee for the rest of the month following last weekend’s attacks.

Executive Director Belinda Tate says in a statement that the museum wants to “open our doors to share the peace and beauty of the museum.”

Tate says the museum is being offered “as a respite space for reflection, nourishment and quality time with family and friends.”

Authorities say the shootings by Jason Dalton were random and they haven’t revealed a motive. The shootings occurred in a restaurant parking lot, outside an apartment building and at a car lot.
