Las Vegas city leaders and law enforcement gave multiple ways for people to give money or supplies to those affected by the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday.

A gunman rained down bullets on a crowd on Sunday, killing at least 59 people, injured at least 527 people at a country music festival. Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he has no doubt the shooting was "pre-planned extensively," and he believes investigators will "absolutely" determine the motive behind shooter Stephen Paddock's carnage.

Church members in Bid Sandy, Tennessee, are also raising money to help one of their volunteers, whose son was shot in Las Vegas. Mike McMillan's son Jason is a California deputy, who has been put in a medically induced coma until he is stable enough to have the bullet removed from his lung.

Donations for the McMillans can be made at Apex Bank at 65 Main Street in Big Sandy or sent to the church at: P.O. Box 7, Big Sandy, TN, 38221.
