Highland Park combining memorials for victims of parade shooting

CHICAGO (CBS)– Four weeks after the mass shooting during the July 4 parade in Highland Park, the city is holding memorials for the victims.

On Monday, the city will move memorials from Port Clinton Square, or the temporary memorial that sits next to the Veterans Memorial near Central and St. Johns.

Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering said the city plans to create a permanent memorial.

She said the city plans to create a lasting memorial in remembrance of the victims, but “will not be engaging in that process in the immediate future” while community members heal.

“Combining these memorials in one place will help us honor these different ways of dealing with the trauma suffered on July 4,” Rotering said in a written statement.
