Route 91 Festival: How to Help Shooting Victims

Fifty-eight people were killed in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history Sunday (Oct. 1) at the Route 91 Harvest festival.

According to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, lone suspect Stephen Paddock, who is now dead, opened fire on the Las Vegas strip where the country music festival was taking place from the 32nd floor of his Mandalay Bay hotel room. 

Anyone wishing to help is asked to donate blood for the 527 injured victims to the American Red Cross. Click here for more information.

To donate money to assist the victims, Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chair from Las Vegas, has set up a GoFundMe page, which has already raised more than $8 million.

In addition, the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee established the Music City Cares Fund, where “100% of the donations [are] going to Las Vegas to help with the immediate and long-term needs of victims in the shooting.” To donate to the Music City Cares Fund, click here
