Hundreds gathered in Kalamazoo Saturday to participate in a memorial ride for the victims, relatives and survivors of the shooting spree in February.

Around 400 motorcycles rode in the We Are Kalamazoo ride, which began at the Perry Harley Davidson in Portage and made it's way through Kalamazoo and then back to the dealership.

The alleged shooter, Jason Dalton, was ordered to stand trial on Friday.

He's charged with killing six people and wounding two others, including 14-year-old Abigail Kopf.

Kopf's father, Gene, directed traffic during the event.

All of the money raised from Saturday's ride will go to the families of those who were killed, as well as the two who survived.
