FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A motorcycle rally and fun ride that was the setting for a 2011 murder-suicide would be held at a Flagstaff-area park if organizers obtain a permit for 2,000 people to use the park's fairgrounds and camping sites.
The group, now called American Brotherhood Aimed Towards Education, is asking Coconino County for a permit to use Fort Tuthill County Park for three days in July.
A man attending the 2011 event held at Mormon Lake south of Flagstaff shot and wounded his wife and fatally shot another couple before killing himself.
Other attendees accused sheriff's officers of violating their constitutional rights during detention and questioning. According to the Arizona Daily Sun (http://bit.ly/XRTd8L), organizer Paul Pendergast says this year's event would focus on education. County officials are reviewing the permit application.
