LAS VEGAS (AP) — From a sunrise event to an after-dark reading of victims’ names, Las Vegas plans to mark the anniversary of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history with memorials to the 58 people killed two years ago.
Joe Robbins, whose 20-year-old son, Quinton Robbins of suburban Henderson, died in the Oct. 1, 2017, attack, is expected to join Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo and others for the Tuesday daybreak ceremony.
The Vegas Strong Resiliency Center plans to promote wellness programs during the day, and the maker of wooden memorial crosses plans to offer them to family members.
Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman is scheduled to mark the time of the shooting at 10:05 p.m. by reciting the names of the slain at a downtown Community Healing Garden.
