Off-duty Mesa police officers assist injured victims at Vegas shooting

Four off-duty police officers from Mesa, Arizona, sprung into action when shots were fired in Las Vegas, offering medical support to injured bystanders.

The officers were attending country music star Jason Aldean’s concert as guests, not law enforcement, according to Sgt. Diana Williams of the Mesa Police Department. But when they heard gunfire their training kicked in, said Williams, and they immediately set out to help in any way they could.

One of the officers was injured during the shooting, along with two officers from the Arizona Department of Public Service who were in attendance. As of this reporting, 59 people were killed in the attack and 527 more were taken to the hospital.
