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.

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.


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.

The Las Vegas shooting quickly became an issue between two Democrats running for California governor in 2018.  Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler reports.

Nevada's Clark County Sheriff's Department has provided a hotline phone number for Californians and others who are looking for information about relatives or loved ones who were in Las Vegas Sunday night, with whom contact hasn't yet been made,  and who may have been affected by yesterday's mass shooting.
