Las Vegas mass shooting anniversary: Man sets up crosses at city's welcome sign

Posted at 4:34 PM, Sep 28, 2018

LAS VEGAS, Nevada — The man who created crosses for each victim of the Oct. 1, 2017 shooting that took 58 lives and injured hundreds has returned to Las Vegas to mark the anniversary.

Greg Zanis arrived at the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign Friday, Sept. 28 to set up the crosses. The crosses lined the area around the sign soon after last year's tragedy. 

Zanis conducted a 58-hour vigil this past weekend to honor the 58 lives lost. Each hour, there was a vigil for a victim. 

Zanis founded the nonprofit Crosses for Losses and has created crosses for other mass shootings, including the Pulse Nightclub shooting in 2016.
