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

Hundreds of people gathered on Easter Sunday to remember the 58 people who were killed during the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

The gathering, which included many of those who were present during the shooting, took place outside of the venue where the deadly shooting took place on October 1, 2017.

Organizers handed out 58 white glow sticks to represent the victims. Attendees also carried white survivor flags.


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. 

The shooting was carried out by Stephen Paddock. A motive for the shooting, which also left several hundred with injuries, has still not been discovered. The investigation into the mass shooting continues.
