Las Vegas shooting: What we know about the victims so far

Parker and Casey were among the 58 country music fans shot to death at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas on October 1.

Several more Southern California residents were injured in Sunday night's shooting, including almost a dozen Southland law enforcement and fire department personnel. They are men and women who had families and loved ones, special and unique talents to share and lives ahead of them to be lived.

The massacre triggered heightened caution on the part of the law enforcement community in the Southland.

"We are pleased to report that all are OK", Concialdi said.

"Certainly a higher visibility of our folks; a greater level of interaction with the public". The two other civilian employees were unharmed.

Rachael Parker, who worked for the Manhattan Beach Police Department for 10 years, was confirmed killed in Sunday night's shooting.

Louise Leslie's 14-year-old great-granddaughter went to the school where Romero worked.

The Santa Clarita Valley Signal reported that Valencia businessman John Phippen, who was attending the concert with his son, Travis, was among those killed. One of her co-workers wrote on Facebook that she was "such an inspiration to so many of us".

Another educator, Jenny Parks, a kindergarten teacher in Palmdale, was also killed in the shooting. Casey died despite the efforts of her fiance to stop her bleeding as he carried her hopefully to safety.

-Susan Smith, 53, was an office manager for the Simi Valley Unified School District.

Parker was remembered by Police Chief Eve Irvine during a press conference on Tuesday as someone who was often in a good mood with a bright smile that was infectious to those around her. Another suffered minor injuries.


LAPD Sgt. Fred Cueto said three other off-duty officers were also at the concert, but none of them were injured. Their names were not released.

There have been so many mass shootings in the United States that many of us, over time, have grown numb to them, or compartmentalized them.

Commercial fisherman Adrian Murfitt, 35, of Anchorage, Alaska, was also among the slain, a family member said Monday.

He said when he heard the gunfire Sunday, he ran toward the crowd looking for victims who needed help. She worked for the district for 16 years.

The Los Angeles Police Protective League, the union representing LAPD officers, issued a statement praising the bravery of first responders in the wake of the "unspeakable act of terror". Police have yet to determine the motive for the shooting, which left Paddock's family members shocked. "You will always find people who are helping.' To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother's words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world".

"She is cherished by understudies and partners alike and will be associated with her comical inclination, her energy for her work, her dedication to her understudies, and her sense of duty regarding proceeding with her own particular learning and to going up against whatever new tasks came her direction", the area said.

Hartfield was a Las Vegas police officer, a military veteran and the father of two children, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Meanwhile, a 22-year-old Torrance woman, Christina Duarte, is still missing following the shooting. Casey's family learned early Monday morning that she died on the scene of the shooting.

"Christina Duarte was last seen at yesterday's concert in Las Vegas".

"He was the best dad", father, Thomas Day Sr., told the Los Angeles Times.
