Man sets up crosses at welcome sign ahead of 1 October anniversary

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - The man who created crosses for each victim of the 1 October shooting has returned to Las Vegas ahead of the anniversary.

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