AURORA, Ill. — Five white crosses memorializing the victims of a warehouse shooting in suburban Chicago are now housed at the Aurora Historical Society.

The society says the crosses will be on display through May 4 along with items left at the Henry Pratt Co. site after the Feb. 15 workplace shooting. The crosses honor five people killed when an employee opened fire at the company.

The Daily Herald reports victim Vicente Juarez’s daughter, Diana, said it’s special to her that the city wants to remember the victims. She says “they’re never going to be forgotten.”

Aurora resident Greg Zanis made the crosses. He is known for taking similar crosses to the sites of gun violence around the country.

The historical society says the crosses will be cleaned, catalogued and archived.
