Police, FBI seek public’s help in finding motive behind Las Vegas massacre
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.”
