As a memorial outside the Henry Pratt Company continues to grow, city officials spoke Tuesday about how Aurora plans to move forward as a community.

The charity was started by an 11-year-old Florida boy to help injured first responders pay their medical bills.

Last February, a gunman, identified as 45-year-old Gary Martin, shot and killed five co-workers.

Martin died in a shootout with responding officers.
