One Romanian was injured in the deadliest mass shooting recorded in US history. Las Vegas authorities have announced that approximately 50 people are dead and 406 people were transported to hospitals after a man started shooting on an outdoor concert.
“I don’t post personal stuff on FB but I really need help right now. Please pray for my son Luca who got shot in Las Vegas shooting. Right now he is in surgery in critical condition and he would appreciate your prayers,” wrote on Facebook Carmen Iclodean, the mother of the 23-year old Romanian injured in the attack.
