Ellison invites son of slain businessman to speech

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The son of a Minneapolis business owner who was gunned down in September has been invited to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.

Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison says he has invited Sami Rahamim be his guest in the U.S. House chamber when Obama gives his State of the Union on February 12th.

Rahamim's father, Reuven Rahamim, four employees and a UPS driver were fatally shot at Accent Signage on September 27th by a gunman who took his own life.

Ellison made his announcement at a forum on gun violence in Minneapolis Thursday. The Democratic congressman says Sami Rahamim has "suffered a tragic loss" but has "stepped forward to make a difference in our community and our nation."
