UNLV Assistant Hockey Coach Injured In Vegas Shooting – Sports Illustrated

A UNLV hockey assistant who was among the more than 500 people injured in a mass shooting during a concert in Las Vegas on Sunday night is out of surgery and is expected to make a full recovery, the UNLV hockey team’s account tweeted out in a statement. 

“UNLV assistant coach Nick Robone is out of surgery to remove a bullet wound form a gunshot wound to the chest, resulting from the tragic events yesterday evening at the Route 91 Harvest Festival,” the statement read. “The bullet missed his lung, though it is bruised badly. He’s in the ICU and will remain in the hospital for the near future. He is expected to make a full recovery. We would like to thank everyone for their outpouring of support. Please keep all of Las Vegas in your prayers at this time.”

The team originally tweeted that Robone was injured and said they would provide updates on Robone when more information was available.

The UNLV hockey Facebook page said early Monday morning that every player on the team was accounted for and safe.

Authorities have said that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire at concert goers from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, which was located across the street from the concert.

It is the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history after authorities said that 58 people were killed.
