(FOX 11) - One day after the deadliest shooting attack on U-S soil, a mourning Vegas community came together at City Hall to heal.
City leaders and pastors lit 59 candles, one for each victim who passed away.
Over 500 people were injured. Thousands were terrorized.
"We just knew we needed to get up and run out of where we were too because we were hearing things like they was a shooter," said Michelle Kruger who was gambling just a few hundred feet away at the Tropicana with her friend.
"Well, we said if we go we go together," said Kruger
The woman, at one point believing Sunday night could have been their last.
While people heal, some city leaders were careful to stay away from controversial topics, instead posing suggestions about hotel safety.
"Maybe some detectors at the hotels, we can have better security at the hotels," said pastor Michael Hatch.
"We've been looking at a lot of things...I known in the Downtown areas, we've put barriers in place, we're going to keep doing that and mitigate those things," said City Manager Scott Adams.
