LAS VEGAS (AP) - Thousands of people marked two weeks since the mass shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival by walking the Strip on Sunday.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal (https://bit.ly/2xJkQNY ) reports people participating in the walk wore “Las Vegas Strong” shirts listing the names of the 58 people who were killed in the Oct. 1 shooting.

They walked more than 3 miles from Circus Circus down to the Mandalay Bay, with some crossing the street to the lot where the festival was held.

The crowd held a moment of silence at 10:05 p.m., marking the estimated time of the shooting.
