FLINT, Mich. (AP) -- About a dozen ambulances and cars with flashing lights and sirens made their way through Flint as part of a procession honoring the victims of last month's school shooting in Connecticut.

The procession went through Flint Saturday morning. It was heading to Sault Ste. Marie for a ceremony and fundraiser for the victims of the Dec. 14 massacre of children and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

The procession was organized by Steven Major, president of Arrowhead Police Emergency Vehicle Equipment in Flint.

Major told The Flint Journal he wants to give Michigan "communities a chance to mourn because it was a shock to us all."

Each vehicle in the procession carried the names of the shooting victims.
