VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The 5/31 Memorial Committee is one step closer to creating a permanent memorial for the victims of the Virginia Beach mass shooting.

In 2019, a city employee shot and killed 12 people at Building 2 in the city's Municipal Center.

On  Thursday night, the committee decided to move forward with four design proposals. Six groups submitted ideas, but two missed the deadline.

In a five-to-three vote, members decided not to reopen the submission window for them.
