VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.-- Renovations have been delayed at the municipal building in Virginia Beach where a mass shooting happened last year.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that city officials don't have enough money to pay for it now because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a letter this week, the mayor of Virginia Beach asked the General Assembly to consider allocating $10 million toward the renovations.

Employees who worked in the building where 12 people were killed have been working at home and in offices across the city.
