PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - A groundbreaking was held on Tuesday, September 19 for a new memorial to honor those killed and hurt in a high school shooting in Paducah, Kentucky nearly 20 years ago.
The community gathered for the ceremony for a memorial to honor those lost on December 1, 1997.
Three girls were killed when a student opened fire at Heath High School, just as a group of students ended their prayer circle.
The memorial would cost $80,000 to build.
According to the memorial committee's Facebook, all of the labor was donated but they are still taking monetary donations for a few necessary items.
