Hundreds honor Las Vegas mass shooting victims

LAS VEGAS — Six months ago, 58 innocent people lost their lives in a shooting on the Las Vegas Strip. 

Hundreds of people gathered Sunday, April 1 to remember the 58 people who were killed in the deadliest mass shooting in modern history.

The gathering took place outside of the venue where the deadly shooting took place on Oct. 1, 2017.

Organizers handed out 58 white glow sticks.

Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak presented 58 red roses to the organizers.

After a reading of the names of the dead and a moment of silence, the attendees took a solemn walk around the perimeter of the festival grounds, which are inaccessible.
