Las Vegas shooting

The Las Vegas Strip goes dark to honor shooting victims

The Las Vegas Strip lights up at night, so bright it can be seen from miles and miles away, but on Monday, the famous stretch of road lost its glow.

The busy Strip was dark, the neon and lights switched off in honor of the victims of Sunday night's mass shooting near the Mandalay Bay Hotel. A candlelight vigil stood out in the darkness, as did the High Roller, which was lit in red, white, and blue.

Landmarks around the world also paid tribute to the people who lost their lives — in solidarity, the spires of the Empire State Building and One WTC both glowed orange, and Tel Aviv's city hall displayed the American flag. The Eiffel Tower was turned off, not only honoring those killed in Las Vegas but also the victims of a knife attack over the weekend in Marseille.
