Lines to donate blood at Las Vegas clinics were already out the door just hours after the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history took place in the city.
Las Vegas residents were pictured waiting outside clinics to give blood before sunrise as hospitals treat the more than 400 injured in the mass shooting that left at least 50 dead.
Local reporters shared photos of people waiting overnight to give blood to treat shooting victims.
I’m told that wait lines are 2-3 hours at this United Blood Services location. People who got here at 3:20 am are now donating— Briana Erickson (@brianarerick) October 2, 2017
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo made a plea for local residents to donate blood for the victims of the shooting during a press conference early Monday.
Local officials and police are still soliciting blood donors and are circulating lists of locations where people can give.
If you would like to donate blood for the injured victims of the Strip shooting visit the Labor Health & Welfare Clinic, 7135 W. Sahara.— LVMPD (@LVMPD) October 2, 2017
