Officials to build database to aid Vegas shooting victims
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County officials say they are working to create a database of everyone who attended, worked or responded to the county music festival on the Las Vegas Strip where a mass shooting killed 58 people and left hundreds injured.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the database paired with a case management system aims connect people affected by the Oct. 1 mass shooting with victim services.
Assistant County Manager Kevin Schiller says officials plan to contact every person on the list, which is estimated to be more than 24,000 people.
The county is seeking to staff the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center in the long term, so the victim services hub could stay open until late 2020.
Officials plan to have the database ready by early January.
