Mayoral Statement: Las Vegas tragedy

Mayor's Office

In the wake of the unspeakable tragedy at the outdoor country music concert last night at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones and friends of the 59 people killed and the 527 people injured in the deadliest mass shooting in our nation’s history.

We send our sympathies to the families of those who lost their lives. One off-duty police officer was killed and at least two others were injured. We are grateful for the quick, courageous and skillful work by Las Vegas law enforcement officials in taking down the gunman and thereby preventing more deaths and injuries.

Please join me in sending healing prayers to all those affected by last night’s horrific violence as we extend our thoughts to the entire Las Vegas community for strength and peace in the days to come.

Mayor Shannon Kohl
