Mourners leave messages at shooting memorial

People continue to flock to the memorial to the 12 people killed in the Colorado movie theater shooting.

On Tuesday, visitors included about two dozen people praying in a circle off to the side.

Others left messages on a blank board. They included "Never forgotten, Wisconsin is praying" and "Our true heroes, we love you 303", a reference to the Denver area code.

The memorial also includes 12 white, wooden crosses, one for each person killed in the shooting, erected by the Illinois man who also put up crosses following the Columbine massacre.

The cross in memory of the youngest victim, 6-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan, has a pile of stuffed animals, flowers and a collection of Little Golden children's books that's almost as tall as the 3½ foot tall cross.
