Remembering Las Vegas shooting victims on 1-year anniversary of deadliest mass shooting
LAS VEGAS, NV - Sunrise is brightening the horizon over Las Vegas, where survivors, victims' family members, first-responders and elected officials are gathering to mark the anniversary of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo are among speakers at a daybreak memorial featuring the release of a flock of doves to honor the 58 people who were killed on Oct. 1, 2017.
Music from the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts high school Academy Singers and 58 seconds of silence are scheduled during the remembrance at the Clark County Government Center amphitheater.
The government center also is hosting the Las Vegas Portraits Project. It features artists' renderings of the people killed at a Route 91 Harvest Festival country music concert.
That display continues through Oct. 19, when the works will be presented to victims' loved ones.
Las Vegas city officials plan to host a prayer vigil beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the plaza in front of City Hall.
