A Pennsylvania children’s wrestling coach who went missing in Las Vegas on Sunday night has been confirmed among those killed when a gunman opened fire on the thousands of people gathered for the Route 91 Harvest music festival.
Bill Wolfe, of Shippensburg, and his wife, Robyn, were watching Jason Aldean perform during the last night of the festival when shots rang out from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, killing nearly 60 people and wounding hundreds more, according to PennLive.com.
Wolfe was separated from his wife in the ensuing chaos, a fellow coach said.
Officials with the Shippensburg Police Department on Tuesday morning confirmed that Wolfe was among those killed in a statement posted on Facebook:
“It is with the most of broken hearts, the families of Bill Wolfe Jr. and his wife Robyn share that Bill has been confirmed to be among the deceased as a result of the mass attack in Las Vegas. Please continue to hold our entire family as well as those affected across the nation in your unending prayers.”
