On Sunday night (Oct. 1) during Jason Aldean’s set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, a shooter opened fire on the thousands of fans killing at least 58 and injuring over 500.

The Las Vegas Police Department said the suspected gunman, 64-year old Stephen Paddock, was shooting from a 32nd floor room of the Mandalay Bay hotel. Police tracked down the shooter and he is now deceased from what they believe is a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

It has become the deadliest mass shooting in United States history, and countless people who were at the festival have stepped up to help transport victims to the hospital, treat injuries, and much more. 

Now, people across America are wondering how they can help the hundreds of victims that are so far away from them. 

A verified GoFundMe account has been set up by the Las Vegas Sheriff and Steve Sisolak, a Clark Country Comission Chair, called the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund. The initial goal is $500,000, and as of press time, almost $60,000 has been raised in less than two hours.

Another way you can help is by donating blood at your local Red Cross or blood bank.

 

Twitter user Bridget Bennett shared a photo of a line of people out the door at the United Blood Services in Las Vegas ready to donate.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and all those affected by this horrible tragedy.
