Titans RB DeMarco Murray offers support for hometown of Las Vegas

Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray is from Las Vegas, Nevada, so Sunday night’s mass shooting hits very close to home.

“Terrible news coming out of my hometown,” Murray wrote on Twitter. “Praying for all affected by this horrific situation. My thoughts are with the victims and their families.”

Murray left Las Vegas to play for the Oklahoma Sooners, then was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. He briefly joined the Philadelphia Eagles before landing with the Titans.

Reports show that the tragedy in Las Vegas has already claimed as many as 50 lives, with the total continuing to climb. At least 400 people have been hurt.

Few specifics are known at this time, though updates continue to come out. The police have noted that the shooter, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, is now deceased.

“The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said Paddock opened fire from a hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, and that he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound before officers entered the room,” wrote Oklahoma Diehards Matt Jennings. “Paddock had at least 10 rifles in the room, authorities said.”

Our thoughts are with those impacted by the shooting and their families.
