TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) – The organizers of a large memorial honoring the victims of a mass shooting in Tucson have released the final design.
The Jan. 8, 2011, shooting left six dead and 13 injured, including former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, who was the target of the attack.
The memorial will be located downtown in Tucson’s historic El Presidio Park and will cost about $4 million. The cost includes a large-scale renovation to the park that includes an amphitheater and a cafe.
The actual memorial is a red steel wall in a diamond-like shape that will feature symbols that tell stories about the shooting, its victims, survivors and first responders.
The January 8th Foundation has already raised about $1 million in private donations and recently received a $50,000 pledge match from an anonymous donor.
