 A gunman opened fire from a high-rise window on the Las Vegas strip during a Jason Aldean concert, killing at least 58 victims and wounding more than 500.

Americans are coming together to offer thoughts, prayers, and condolences to the victims of this tragedy. Here's how you can help:

Monetary donations: Donating money is one of the fastest and most effective ways to help during a crisis. Officials in Las Vegas launched a verified GoFundMe page to raise money for the victims and their families after a tragic mass shooting. Click here to donate.
