Families of Victims of the 1 October Las Vegas Shooting to receive $275k Each

After a crowd funding campaign raised $31.5 million for the victims of the 1 October shooting in Las Vegas last year, the non-profit organization has announced how they are going to dole out the money.  Families of the 58 people who died as a result of their injuries are set to receive $275 thousand dollars each, as will the 10 people who were permanently paralyzed or suffered severe brain damage.

An additional $10 million dollars will be divided among the 147 people who were hospitalized as a result of their injuries sustained during the 1 October massacre.  Disbursements were determined by a committee of victim advocates, mental health and medical professionals, lawyers, donors and others. The committee held two town hall meetings to hear from victims and their families.
