Mayor Nancy McFarlane issued the following statement about Sunday night’s shooting massacre at a Las Vegas concert:

“Words cannot express the level of disbelief and sadness many of us feel about the news coming out of Las Vegas today. An evening of fun, music and entertainment at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival turned into an evening of unimaginable terror and heartbreak as an individual opened fire on the crowd, killing more than 50 people and injuring hundreds more. We mourn with the nation and send our condolences and prayers to the victims and their friends and families. In times of tragedy, let us set aside our differences and come together as a community to heal. We are strong when we are united and stand against violence and hate.”
