Columbine Anniversary

Anniversary of Columbine attack 

Today marks six years since the nation's worst-ever school shooting. Two student gunmen -- Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold -- shot and killed 12 students and a teacher at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado.

Then they killed themselves. There's word that fund raising for a memorial to the victims has stalled and organizers may have to redesign the two-and-a-half  million dollar project. The chairman of the Columbine Memorial Committee says it has raised just 700-thousand dollars so far.

The committee will decide in July whether to scale down the memorial plans to begin construction sooner. One woman whose son was killed at Columbine says "People lose interest." She says "a lot of people chose to move on and forget about it."
