As the residents of Las Vegas begin to heal, the memory of what happened will never be forgotten. 

News 4 Tucson’s Sean Mooney reports from the Las Vegas strip with what one Tucson woman experienced that horrific night.

Since the Las Vegas Strip was reopened Tuesday night, there has been a steady stream of people coming here to add to the growing memorial in the middle of the strip. Others to reflect and pay their respects to those lost. 

One of the people who survived the attack is Julie Kirscher from Tucson. On Sunday night she was with friends to see the concert -three of them were shot, fortunately, none suffered life-threatening injuries.

She told us that when the shooting started, it was absolute chaos. Many ran for their lives but Julie said there were many, including one of her friends, who were more worried about protecting others.

“One of my friends, his two daughters were shot, and one of their boyfriends was shot, so he helped them all out. But there is stories all over the place of people not caring of what was going on and just stopped and helped the people around them.”

Julie said all her friends who were shot are all doing well.

She said she was also hit by shrapnel fragments in her leg. But she’s mentally beginning to process what happened in Las Vegas.
