03 Octobre 2017

Police have warned that identifying bodies from the worst mass shooting in modern US history will be a "long, laborious process".

McIldoon would have celebrated his 24th birthday Friday. He had gone to the same music festival previous year.

In British Columbia, a family member confirmed McIldoon was among the dead. McIldoon, from Maple Ridge, was a heavy duty mechanic who worked with Jacob Bros Construction, which is based in Surrey.

"The manager had come up to us and said, "sorry we're going to have to evacuate off the strip, there is an active shooter", MacDonald told Postmedia. "[He was] very kind and caring".

In a Facebook posting that could not immediately be verified, Heather Gooze of Las Vegas said she was outside the festival grounds when the Canadian passed away. One of the men, who was shot in the head, is unresponsive. "RIP Jordan McIldoon from British Columbia", Gooze wrote.

"I was shocked. just shocked".

At least 58 people were killed and more than 515 injured.

Jessica Klymchuk, a 28-year-old Valleyview, Alta. woman, and a third Canadian who has not yet been publicly identified also died in the attack.

"Our hearts are all broken", Iveson said in a tweet.

Sheldon Mack from Victoria was also injured in the attack. "I take comfort knowing the women & men who serve in law enforcement are trained & ready to respond when the worst occurs".

Jordan's parents are heading to Las Vegas on a Monday night flight.

"We only had one child", they commented.

Stephanie Park, a wheelchair athlete from Maple Ridge, attended the concert with her mother and posted on Facebook that both escaped unscathed.

Steve Arruda, from Calgary, was shot in the leg but is said to be in good spirits.

He said Canada is willing to offer assistance to USA authorities, if needed, to further the investigation.

Las Vegas is a popular tourist destination for Canadians. "All Canadians are appalled and share the grief of so, so many victims".

Trudeau reaffirmed to Trump that Canada stands with the United States following this senseless and cowardly act of violence, the prime minister's office said in a statement. "The friendship & support of Canadians is with the victims in Las Vegas & the people of the U.S", he tweeted.
