California officer shot during Vegas concert

California officer shot during Vegas concert”

At least two Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department employees, two Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters, three Los Angeles County Fire Department employees, a Torrance firefighter, an Orange County sheriff's deputy, a Los Angeles police officer and two Newport Beach employees, including an off-duty police officer, were wounded in Sunday night's shooting.

Multiple news outlets reported that Manhattan Beach Middle School special education teacher Sandy Casey was killed in the attack, which ended in the deaths of at least 58 people.

Meanwhile, the Manhattan Beach Police Department announced that records technician Rachael Parker was also killed in the shooting.

The LA County Fire Department issued a release later in the day to also confirm that "several off-duty members" of its department were in attendance, too.

A gunman perched on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino unleashed hails of bullets on fans watching the festival as headliner Jason Aldean performed. Both were taken to a local hospital, and one remains in critical condition.

Two employees with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department were struck by gunfire, the agency said.

Ontario police Officer Michael Garcia, 24, and a 4-year veteran of the department was critically injured in the shooting.

The gunman was identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, who lives in a retirement community in Mesquite, about an hour and a half away. He is listed in critical but stable condition, said Ontario Police Sgt. Jeff Higbee. They're "not considered life-threatening". The other individual is in stable condition, the release noted. But LAPD Deputy Chief Phillip Tingirides said she appeared to have some sort of "episode" and told students there was an active shooter. One officer was hit by gunfire and is being treated for a non-life-threatening injury. "Some of our officers witnessed the gunfire but were not in a position to return fire".

The department said they would release the injured officer's name after the situation in Las Vegas had stabilized.

"They went back out where the gunfire was", after taking the wife of one of the officers and the girlfriend of the other to safety in the stage area, said Tom Dominguez, the head of the Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs.

The Los Angeles Police Department says Monday that an off-duty officer who was shot in the leg is expected to recover. But most importantly, we rely on all Angelenos to remain vigilant and report anything odd or out of place to police or security officials. The Bakersfield Police Department reported that Officer Aaron Mundhenke was struck by gunfire at the event but was "expected to make a full recovery". Paddock's ex-wife lives in Cerritos, and she apparently called the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department after news of the shooting broke.

"My thoughts are especially with the California officers and firefighters who were injured".
