More than two years after the shooting at the country music festival in Las Vegas, a woman wounded in the shooting has died, a coroner’s release stated.
Kimberly Gervais, 57, was paralyzed after being shot on Oct. 1, 2017, at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history. The shooter killed 58 people and wounded hundreds of others.
Gervais was recovering in a nursing facility in Redlands, and was brought to Redlands Community Hospital on Friday afternoon where she was pronounced dead, the San Bernardino County coroner’s release said. The coroner’s division will conduct an autopsy.
Clark County in Nevada tweeted a statement honoring Gervais.
“Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Kim Gervais,” the post said. “Kim was wounded and paralyzed on #1October. For the past two years, she had battled the physical and psychological toll of the Las #Vegas Shooting.”
