LAS VE­GAS (Reuters) - As Las Ve­gas po­lice ap­pealed to the pub­lic for help in un­cov­er­ing a wealthy re­tiree’s mo­tive for mas­sacring 58 peo­ple at an out­door con­cert this week, US Vice Pres­i­dent Mike Pence vis­ited Las Ve­gas on Satur­day stress­ing unity and of­fer­ing so­lace.

“We are united in our grief, in our sup­port for those who have suf­fered and united in our re­solve to end such evil in our time,” Pence said, join­ing Las Ve­gas Mayor Carolyn Good­man and other lo­cal lead­ers at a City Hall com­mem­o­ra­tion for vic­tims of the shoot­ing that fol­lowed a prayer walk through the city.

Par­tic­i­pants trod seven miles (11 km) along four sep­a­rate paths to City Hall for an event where se­cu­rity was high. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump paid a visit to Las Ve­gas ear­lier in the week.

Las Ve­gas’ Demo­cratic Con­gress­woman Dina Ti­tus was the only speaker who touched on the sub­ject of gun vi­o­lence and pol­i­tics, say­ing, “Let us also pray for those who have power that they will have the wis­dom, the courage, and the re­solve to find ways to end the gun vi­o­lence that plagues our na­tion.”
