A man who survived the mass shooting in Las Vegas on October 1st was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Nevada on November 17. He is the fourth survivor to die since the shooting massacre at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.
Roy McClellan’s widow, Denise, was with him during the shooting.
“It was just ear-piercing. I was like oh my gosh, what is that noise? This is horrible,” she told our affiliate KSNV news.
She says her and her husband ran for their lives but even as bullets rained down around them, her husband Roy stopped to help people along the way.
She says her husband had been in therapy since the shooting. “It was really messing with his head and he was going to therapy,” she said.
“This isn’t what I wanted for him. I don’t understand why he wasn’t taken at the shooting, but a month later he was taken this way,” said McClellan. “I hope my husband found peace and he’s safe now.”
Roy was killed as he was walking along the highway, hitchhiking. The driver of the car that hit him is still on the loose.
“I’m angry. I’m angry. I feel that he was under the influence of something or drunk and didn’t want to get caught, so he bailed and left my husband laying there in the street. He doesn’t deserve that,” said Denise McClellan.
If you would like to help McClellan’s family, a GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family pay for funeral costs.
Last month a couple who also survived the Las Vegas shooting was killed in a car accident near their home in Riverside County, California. Dennis and Lorraine Carver were trapped inside their car after it slammed into a metal gate and caught on fire.
On October 9, 28-year-old survivor Kymberley Suchomel died suddenly in her sleep. Her family says she was epileptic and prone to seizures.
