Sheldon Mack is now recovering in hospital after emergency surgery performed the night of the shooting. The 21-year-old wrote on Twitter today that he had suffered two gunshot wounds, resulting in a ruptured colon and a broken forearm.

“As we pull together as a family and thank God he's going to be okay, our hearts break for the families of the people who were killed and the many others who were wounded,” he wrote.

Two Canadians were killed: Jordan McIldoon, a 23-year-old mechanic from Maple Ridge, and Jessica Klymchuk, a mother of four from Valleyview, Alberta.

They are among the 59 dead and more than 500 injured in the deadliest mass shooting in United States history. A gunman opened fire from a hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, targeting a crowd of 22,000 people who had gathered for a country music festival.

The suspected gunman is Stephen Paddock, 64, of Nevada. He was dead when police entered his hotel room, and it is believed he had killed himself, according to media accounts. He had no prior criminal history and police say they have found no connection terrorist groups.
