On Sunday night, at least 58 people were killed and more than 515 were injured when a shooter opened fire from the 32 floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas onto concert-goers outside. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement Monday in response to the shooting:

To all of those affected by the horrific events in Las Vegas, we offer our deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers. We pray for those who are mourning the loss of loved ones and for those who are seeking to recover from the physical and emotional wounds they are suffering. May God bless them with the peace and comfort only He can provide in such tragic and heartbreaking moments.

The motive for the shooting is currently unclear. The shooter was a 64-year-old from Mesquite and has not been linked to any organization.
