The pylons at Los Angeles International Airport, usually brightly colored to welcome travelers and guests, were dark through Tuesday morning to honor the victims of the Las Vegas Strip massacre.

The pylons were not switched on Monday evening, and stayed dark until they would normally go off at sunrise Tuesday, according to Becca Doten of Los Angeles World Airports, which operates the airport.

“The Los Angeles World Airports family stands strong with all those who have been impacted by what happened in Las Vegas,” said Trevor Daley, Deputy Executive Director for External Affairs of Los Angeles World Airports.

“Our thoughts are with everyone who has been hurt by this senseless act of violence, and we grieve with those who have lost loved ones and friends,” Daley said.
