A memorial for the downtown Lawrence shooting victims continued to expand Friday as people drop off flowers, candles, food and other items at the corner of 11th and Massachusetts streets. Five people were shot near the intersection early Sunday morning, three of them fatally: Leah Elizabeth Brown, 22, of Shawnee; and Colwin Lynn Henderson III, 20, and Tre'Mel Dupree Dean, 24, both of Topeka. The Watkins Museum of History, just behind the memorial, has posted a sign indicating that it is seeking to preserve various items in the memorial from inclement weather.
