Las Vegas Attack Update: The Ones Who Were Lost

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/​s​e​c​t​i​o​n​s​/​t​h​e​t​w​o​-​w​a​y​/​2​0​1​7​/​1​0​/​0​2​/​5​5​5​0​1​8​6​6​5​/​l​a​s​-​v​e​g​a​s​-​m​a​s​s​-​s​h​o​o​t​i​n​g​-​l​a​t​e​s​t​-​w​h​o​-​a​r​e​-​t​h​e​-​v​i​c​t​ims
