    Plans for a Central Texas memorial to victims of the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage have fallen about $78,000 short to complete the site.

    The Killeen Daily Herald reports fundraising, as of Wednesday's fifth anniversary of the deadly gunfire, continues on the $402,000 project.

    The Color Up Killeen 5K run on Saturday will benefit the Fort Hood November 5 Memorial planned near the Killeen Civic and Conference Center.

    Thirteen people were killed and more than 30 wounded in the attack blamed on an Army psychiatrist. Nidal Hasan was convicted and sentenced to death.

    The memorial will include 13 U.S. flags, an open-air pavilion and 13 black granite columns.

    Former Killeen Mayor Fred Latham says crews began surveying the property last week and put stakes in the ground.
