The crowdfunding site GoFundMe is in the process of raising $8.4 Million for the victims of last night’s Las Vegas rampage. So far over 65,667 people have donated to the page. And the page has been shared 262,000 times.

Sisolak said he spent the night with “Sheriff Lombardo at Clark County’s only level-one trauma center.”
“Funds will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting.” Steve Sisolak
