The city of Seal Beach will hold a town hall meeting to discuss the Oct. 12 shootings that rattled the community and left eight dead. Officials say they called the town hall to answer questions about the investigation. Counselors will also be on hand and discuss the community's grieving and methods of coping with the tragedy.

The meeting will be held Thursday Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. and is expected to provide an update from officials on the shooting spree at the Meritage beauty salon.

Police arrested Scott Dekraai shortly after the shootout and charged him with the killings. Prosecutors say Dekraai was involved in a child custody battle with his ex-wife, who worked at the salon and died from her injuries.

The lone survivor of the mass shooting was 73-year old Harriet Stretz, whose hairstylist daughter was killed.

Dekraai is currently being held without bail, and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

The meeting will be held at McGaugh ElementarySchool in Seal Beach.
