Global News says a fourth Canadian was killed in Las Vegas. 34 year old Tara Roe was from Okotoks and a mother of 2. A GoFundMe page set up in her honour is collecting funds to cover expenses for “Zach and the kids”.
“In a time of overwhelming emotions, sadness, and pain, the last thing the Roe/Smith families need to be worrying about are the financial obligations associated with this tragic loss. He’s not the kind to ask for help, but Zach would give you the shirt off his back, even if you weren’t the kind to ask for help either.”
Valleyview’s Jessica Klymchuk and Jasper’s Calla Medig were also killed in Las Vegas. Klymchuk will be remembered at a vigil Tuesday night. Jordan McIldoon from Maple Ridge B.C. also died in the attack. 59 people have died and more than 520 have been treated for various injuries.
Stephen Paddock broke out his 32nd floor window at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino before he opened fire on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. Police say that Paddock took his own life before they entered the room.
