OKLAHOMA CITY (KSWO) - Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson will speak in Oklahoma City to honor the victims, survivors and first responders of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing.
Wednesday marks the 22nd anniversary.
On April 19th, 1995, at 9:02 a.m., Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols blew up the federal building with a rental truck packed with homemade explosives.
More than 500 people were injured and 168 people were killed, including 19 children.
Secretary Carson will deliver a speech at a ceremony that starts at 8:50 a.m.
Governor Mary Fallin and Senator James Lankford are also set to speak.

Before the ceremony, Secretary Carson visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum Tuesday night, where he placed notes on the chairs of the 35 Housing and Urban Development employees who were killed in the blast.
