More than 400 people are wounded after a late-night shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement saying that residents should donate blood to the more than 400 people wounded when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire from his hotel room late Sunday.
Specifically, United Blood Services is set to start taking donations at 7 a.m. local time at 6930 West Charleston Boulevard in Las Vegas or 601 Whitney Ranch Drive in Henderson. The University Medical Center of Southern Nevada is also preparing to launch a blood drive Monday at the Delta Point Building, though the exact time of that event has not yet been announced.
Steve Sisolak, the chairman of the Clark County commission, launched a GoFundMe campaign Monday "to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting."
