LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - Thursday, a small group of survivors from other mass shootings across the country gathered at City Hall to show their support to the victims of Sunday's shooting.

The survivors included some of those from the 2011 Tuscon shooting, where U.S. Representative Gabby Giffords was shot. It also included survivors from the 2012 shooting at the Colorado movie theater, and the 2015 shooting in San Bernardino. 


They told 13 Action News that once they found out what happened at the Route 91 Music Festival, they wanted to make the trip to show their support to the victims.

The groups said they know what the victims in Las Vegas are going through, and what the recovery process will be like for them.

"People say 'well surely you've put that behind you'," Patricia Maisch, a survivor of the 2011 Tuscon shooting, said. "But it's always there.  It's right beside me, right behind me, or in my face, depending on the instance."
