COLORADO SPRINGS -A Colorado group held a vigil at Acacia Park to honor the lives lost in the tragic Las Vegas shooting last October.

This weekend marked one year since the horrific mass shooting that took the lives of 58 people. While a year has gone by, many are still demanding action for the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

This includes a Colorado group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense America, a part of Everytown for Gun Safety.

Volunteers with the Colorado chapter held a vigil Sunday night for the community to gather and honor the many lives lost on the night of October 1, 2017. A total of 58 lives were lost that night and hundreds of people were injured.

Everytown for Gun Safety is a gun violence prevention organization in the United States with millions of supporters, working to defend public safety. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a grassroots movement working to “respect the Second Amendment and protect people from gun violence.”

The vigil was held at Acacia Park at 7 p.m.
