Community members came together on Sunday to paint a mural paying tribute to the victims of the mass shooting at an elementary school in Texas.

Volunteers gathered to put hearts onto a wall near the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Antelope Way.


Two teachers and 19 students were killed at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, while at least four others were injured.

The painting was organized by Las Vegas mayoral candidate Kara Jenkins and artist Janel Raihl.

"This is her way of expressing our love and empathy because we experienced this with One October, here in Vegas," Jenkins said. "And so it's especially important that we show support, and that you can make a difference and contribute in your own way."

Raihl said: "It gives people an opportunity to come together as a community and to show some love. And we want to remember all of the victims of gun violence."
