Hundreds of people throughout the Inland Empire came together in various tribute events marking the lives lost a week ago in the shootings in Las Vegas and a year ago in Palm Springs. More from KVCR's Ken Vincent.
The shooting in Las Vegas is immediately leading to calls from Democratic officials in California for their federal counterparts to tighten the nation's gun laws - and to look to the state as a model. After California added many new firearms restrictions in the aftermath of the 2015 San Bernardino mass shooting, even more currently await Governor Jerry Brown's signature. Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford reports.
59 people were killed in the Las Vegas massacre, and more than 500 were injured. Hospitals are calling for blood donations to help treat victims. As Capital Public Radios' Sammy Caiola explains, you don't need to be in Las Vegas - or even Nevada - to donate.
Two Palm Springs police officers who were shot and killed in the line of duty - Jose "Gil" Vega, and Leslie Kling Zerebny - will be remembered with memorials next month on the 1-year anniversary of their deaths. More from KVCR's Ken Vincent.
