LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — As the investigation into Kobe Bryant's deadly helicopter crash resumes Tuesday morning, his loss continues to hit home for many in the Las Vegas area and tributes have been popping up all around the valley.

The string of lights above Main Street in the Arts District have also been changed to purple and gold.

Fremont Street, normally a cheerful place, had a more somber feel as the monitors on the Viva Vision canopy displayed the words "RIP Kobe" and "L.A.. our hearts go out to you."


Many celebrities have been expressing their condolences on Twitter, as well -- including several Raiders players.
