Police Say Identifying Victims of Vegas Shooting Will be Long, Laborious Process

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo says the hundreds of people wounded in the Las Vegas mass shooting were taken to five southern Nevada hospitals.

Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center says in a statement it received 14 patients who died and more than 160 who were injured.

The statement on Monday said the Las Vegas hospital’s doctors performed about 30 surgeries and that police were still trying to notify relatives of the victims.

Hospital CEO Todd Sklamberg said most of the hospital’s trauma team and staff worked through the night after the shooting that killed at least 58 people and wounded more than 500.

Police have warned that identifying bodies from the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history will be a “long, laborious process.”
