Pennsylvania to light Capitol as gesture in wake of Las Vegas shooting

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- The Pennsylvania Capitol will be lit in the colors of the Nevada flag as a gesture of solidarity with the people of that state following the mass shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert.

Gov. Tom Wolf's office said the gesture will occur Monday night as a way to honor the shooting's hundreds of victims.

Wolf says he and his wife are praying for the victims, their families and "all those in Nevada who awoke to sadness and fear that few can fathom."

The governor says people can draw strength from the example of those who responded to the shooting by putting others before themselves, helping victims and running toward the gunfire.

The Capitol will be lit in blue, gold and green on Monday night.
