Las Vegas Attack Update: The Ones Who Were Lost
A 20-year-old aspiring nurse who fell into her high school sweetheart’s arms. A Navy veteran haunted by the memories of war. A mechanic who loved the outdoors and held a stranger’s hand as he died. A mom of four with a newborn at home, still out on maternity leave. A husband celebrating his anniversary, taking a bullet for his wife.
Fifty-eight people died in the Sunday night attack on a country music concert on the Las Vegas Strip, not counting the shooter, and more than 500 were injured. It was the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Not every victim has been named. “It’s a long, laborious process to identify the victims and reunite them with the family members,” said Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo. But dozens of victims have already been identified, and across the country, families, friends and entire communities are grieving their losses. http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/10/02/555018665/las-vegas-mass-shooting-latest-who-are-the-victims
