The Latest: Vegas dims lights to mark week since shooting


LAS VEGAS — The Latest on the mass shooting in Las Vegas (all times local):

10:05 p.m.

At 10:05 p.m., the Las Vegas Strip’s bright lights dimmed for about 10 minutes to mark the passing of exactly a week since a gunman opened fire, killing 58 people and wounding almost 500 at a country music festival.

Most casinos along Las Vegas Boulevard darkened their marquees briefly Sunday.

A week earlier, gunfire began raining from a 32nd-floor room at the gold-glass Mandalay Bay hotel tower on the city’s famous resort corridor.
