ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen traveled to Las Vegas on Saturday to mourn with the community after a gunman opened fire on a country music festival killing 58 people. "On Sunday night, Las Vegas came face to face with pure evil," Pence said during remarks at a unity prayer event, "But no evil, no act of violence will ever diminish the strength and goodness of the American people." Police and FBI agents, chasing down more than 1,000 dead-end leads, are seeking more help from the public in solving the central mystery of their investigation - the shooter's motive.
