    A crowdfunding page set up to help the family of Roy McClellan, who survived the Las Vegas shooting only to be killed several weeks later, has raised more than double its $1,500 target.

    A GoFundMe fundraising page has been set up to help the family of Roy McClellan, who survived the Las Vegas massacre but was killed less than two months later.

    The fundraiser has a target of $1,500 to meet the family's funeral costs. In just two days, the appeal has raised $3,805.

    ​McClellan was killed by a hit and run driver while hitchhiking in southern Nevada on November 17. He is believed to be the fourth survivor of the October 1 shooting spree who has subsequently died.

    ​​Husband and wife Dennis and Lorraine Carver died on October 16 when their car crashed into a metal gate and burst into flames near their home in Riverside County, California.

    Kymberley Suchomel, 28, who posted an eyewitness account of the Las Vegas shooting on her Facebook page, was found dead at her home in Apple Valley, California, on October 9. The exact cause of her death has not been made public but she is known to have suffered from epilepsy.


    On October 1, gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on 22,000 spectators at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. His shooting spree killed 59 people and wounded over 500 more, the most deadly mass shooting in US history.

    In October, a crowdfunding page set up to help survivor Tina Frost walk again raised over $500,000 to help pay for her medical care. Frost, 27, was shot in the head, and the bullet pierced her brain and severely damaged her right eye.
