Clark County officials released updated numbers and details from Sunday night's mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. With at least 58 people dead and more than 500 injured, it is the worst mass shooting in modern American history.
For the latest, A Martinez spoke with Carrie Kaufman, host and producer of "State of Nevada" on Nevada Public Radio (KNPR) in Las Vegas, right after she attended the press conference with local officials.
What is known so far about the victims?
They kept saying the victims were of all ages. There were kids there, there were people in their 20's, people a little older. We don't know how many of the victims were shot and how many of victims were hurt running away. 515 people are now in four area hospitals and some of them are more injured than others. They're asking for blood, so that indicates to me a lot of the people were shot. Blood is a big thing.
How are the hospitals handling the large number of patients?
Every first responder in the city came out. They saw firefighters and paramedics drenched in blood, soaked in blood. There are bodies that are still there and they say it's going to be pretty much all day before they clean up the bodies and identify them and match them with their loved ones.
