In front of the iconic "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign, Greg Zanis arranged one cross for every person who was killed when a gunman opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival last Sunday.

The white wooden crosses were adorned with a red heart and a picture of each victim.

Zanis erected similar displays after other mass shootings in Columbine, Newtown and Orlando.
